Excelling the Future of Energy Through Technetics’ Advanced Sealing Technology
Port cells serve as confinement barriers to shield the environment from radiation generated by the reactor. The cells, made of specially formulated concrete, oppose the passage of neutrons and contamination. As important as it is to keep the radiation confined, it’s equally essential that the port cells are accessible to allow maintenance and repairs of the interior reactor.
Thanks to collaboration with the CEA, Technetics is working to solve these demanding technical challenges to enhance the project’s performance and longevity in many ways. For instance, Technetics provides various engineering solutions to develop and maintain vacuum chamber sealing as well as designing and developing specific components for the reactor, such as vacuum seals.
We steadily provide ultra-high vacuum, irradiation, tritium environment, and remote handling solutions throughout the program. Our engineers develop safety systems, cycle systems, and maintenance services to ensure the solutions are performing correctly. Additionally, we are committed to a complete, all-around engineering study and analysis for the four years of the program.
