ТК-S-PIK Packaging for Fresh PIK FA Shipment

By the NP-053-16 classification, TK-S-PIK is assigned to Type A packages containing fissile materials.

The TK-S-PIK packaging serves to transport the PIK reactor fuel assemblies from the manufacturer's facility and their temporary storage in the fresh fuel storage facility. It is designed to withstand shipments by public-access road, rail, river, and sea. The orientation of the packaging during loading/unloading and transportation is horizontal.

The TK-S-PIK incorporates:

  • a cask,
  • a square or hexagonal cross-section inner shell for a PIK fuel assembly,
  • wrapping and stuffing,
  • spares and accessories.

Rubber gaskets resistant to high/low temperatures, acids, and alkali ensure the tightness of the body-to-lid joint. The TK-S-PIK packaging allows replacing gaskets followed by leak testing. Sealing holes are available on some parts of the cask lid and body. 

TK-S-PIK has eight supports for horizontal positioning, stowing, and fastening, and shackles. Stowing up to five levels of the TK-S-PIK packages on one another is allowed. The packaging also has four fold-out handles for manual handling.
