1000th Scale Pilot Plant for the Nuclear Industry


​ESR Technology was commissioned to produce a 1000th scale process plant to allow crucial data to be extracted prior to the full scale active plant being commissioned in the first quarter of 2013.

This process will see the dissolution of Magnox (the reactor fuel rod cladding) being dissolved in a dosed solution while maintaining stable operating conditions and a controlled environment.

The pilot plant mimics the dynamics of how the full scale plant is envisaged, and facilitates the data acquisition equipment needed to validate theoretical calculations via practical testing.

ESR’s efficient and high quality assembly has been well received and praised.
