Machines for Dismantling
Babcock Noell also develops, manufactures and installs machines meeting the requirements for dismantling contaminated and activated items in hot cells, e. g. machines that cut spent fuel elements into their individual components and prepare them for being put in storage containers. In this context, engineering includes specifying a preparatory concept for facilitating the dismantling process also in circumstances where items do not conform to specifications. Various scenarios are analyzed to find the best dismantling method, e. g. milling, cutting, sawing, taking into consideration existing conditions such as space, item size, etc. Based on the specifications and requirements, the component control is developed, programmed, and manufactured.
Furthermore, the interaction with the corresponding handling technology, the remote-controlled service as well as further treatment is also covered.
