The elimination as radioactive waste of a fluorination furnace from the plutonium extraction plant (1962); Elimination comme dechet radioactif d'un four de fluoration en provenance de l'usine d'extraction du plutonium (1962)

Abstract

The furnace, 1.60 x 0. 75 x 0.80 m in dimensions, was placed inside a 2. 50 x 1.25 x 2 m glove box. The operations were as follows: - removal of the furnace from the glove box; - storage of the furnace in a special container ; - reduction to a minimum volume and elimination of the glove box. A very high {alpha} activity, oxidation of the various channeling, and waste products trapped in the box necessitated special safety measures such as fixing of the contamination, crushing, the use of appropriate vinyl envelopes. This long and tedious work was carried out with no resulting bodily or atmospheric contamination.
