Filter Replacement Machines
The pool water treatment systems in nuclear power plants are equipped with special filters which need to be replaced once certain radiation limit values have been reached. For protection against radiation, a remotely controlled shielded filter replacement apparatus is used for replacing filters.
The filter replacement unit is positioned with a new filter above the filter recess, opens the filter housing, removes the spent filter cartridges, and replaces the new filter cartridges. In its end position, the filter replacement unit places the spent fuel cartridges in a drum shield for further transport to the waste treatment plant.
