Decontamination and remote dismantling tests in the Itrec reprocessing plant
The purpose of the work was to verify experimentally the possibility of the decontamination of any particular module and the capability of the remote dismantling of components installed in the mobile rack. In particular, the main objective was to develop remotely operated equipment for the dismantling of centrifugal contractors. The equipment's decontamination, which represents the most important preliminary phase of the decommissioning operation, allowed low levels of radioactivity to be achieved. A supporting programme was performed in order to collect sufficient data for the project and design of the remote dismantling machine. On the basis of technological cold test results, the construction of the dismantling machine was optimised.
