Title: Funnel for fuel pin loading system

Abstract

An enlarged funnel is described which is releasably mounted at the open end of a length of cladding by an encircling length of shrink tubing which securely engages outer surfaces of both the funnel and cladding. The shrink tubing overlaps an annular shoulder against which pulling force can be exerted to remove the tubing from the cladding. The shoulder can be provided on a separate collar or ring, or on the funnel itself.
