Container Handling Training
Before customers or third party operators are permitted to unload containers without the presence of a REVISS engineer REVISS requires that they undertake container handling training specific to each container design.
Flasks Shielded with Depleted Uranium
The innovative design of REVISS 3300A and 3750A flasks makes them lighter and more compact than other commonly used flasks, without sacrificing load capacity. They are fully approved as Type B(U) under the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials (TS-R-1, 2005). They are designed for unloading submerged in the pool of wet-storage plants and are ideal for plants with limited access space.
Lead Shielded Flasks
The REVISS ZA/NNR 1006/B(U)-96 transport container is used typically to transport RSL2089 Co-60 sealed radiation sources. It is also licensed for the transportation of Cs-137 in compatible IAEA special form capsules.
The REVISS GB/3939A/B(U) container is designed for the transportation of RSL1800 Co-60 sealed radiation sources for installation in dry industrial radiation processing plants but may be submerged in water for loading RSL1800 sources into wet plants. It is also licensed to carry non-special form sealed sources such as those outside their recommended working life.
REVISS transport containers for road, sea and air transportation of sealed radiation sources utilise lead or depleted uranium to shield the environment from radiation. They are the most technologically advanced designs in the industry. They are designed to withstand high speed impact and fire. Prototype models must maintain containment, radiation and thermal shielding after successive drop-tests onto a steel post or a hardened concrete target from heights of 1m and 9 m.
