CONDITIONING OF CLADDING WASTE FOR LONG-TERM STORAGE BY PRESS COMPACTION AND ENCAPSULATION IN LEAD CONTAINMENT
The conditioning of compacted cladding waste has been based on the concept of a corrosion resistant containment. The technique of press compaction in remote operation conditions has been demonstrated. Detailed specifications of the design of the container are discussed in the report. Testing procedures for the different containment parts have been developed and applied. The remote welding techniques of the stainless steel and lead-based parts of the containment have been investigated and reliable procedures are reported. A technique for remote leak testing of welded containers is described. The report contains a series of pictures documenting the entire conditioning concept, starting from the dissolver basket at the reprocessing stage up to the final disposal container.
