Transfer casks for ILRW and HLRW of the PIK reactor

Year of manufacture: 2018

Customer: NRC "Kurchatov Institute" – PNPI, St. Petersburg, Russia

 

 

The transfer cask for solid high-level radioactive waste (HLRW) is intended to transfer a can for solid HLRW with a specific activity of no more than 108 kBq/kg and load it into a TK-VAO-PIK shielded cask. This solid HLRW arose during the replacement of the PIK reactor vessel and internals. 

The transfer cask ensures personnel protection against gamma radiation during solid HLRW handling.

The transfer cask capacity is one irretrievable can for solid HLRW.

 

The transfer cask for solid intermediate-level radioactive waste (ILRW) is intended to transfer a can for solid ILRW with a specific activity of no more than 107 kBq/kg. It ensures personnel protection against ionizing radiation during solid ILRW handling.

The cask capacity is one irretrievable can for solid ILRW.

 

Each transport cask comprises an electromagnetic grapple for ILRW (HLRW) can and a lifting beam.

The electric equipment of the transfer cask is controlled with a pendant control station connected to the control cabinet. The operator monitors the operations using the indicators on the front panel of the control cabinet.
