Tritium degassing processes

Project: To study, supply and implement the equipment required for quantitative assessments, and to control the tritium degassing of 200 L drums, whether immobilised or not, in a dedicated « Package Control Installation » unit within the Aube Storage Centre

Aims and characteristics:

  • To place the drum within the enclosure formed by the containment layer
  • To ensure helium pressurisation and pressure maintenance in order to carry out the watertightness test
  • To perform helium sniffing tests with process instruments
  • To manage the opening and closing processes for the extraction valve and check the network pressure
  • To organise trapping, trapping closure and the circulation pump’s start up

CSTI Group services:
