WASTE DRUM TRANSFER SYSTEM (WDTS)

Waste and bulk packaging solutions

CRL’s Waste Drum Transfer System (WDTS) was developed to address the need for a safer method of transferring waste from gloveboxes and hot cells.

The system offers the ability to mitigate dangerous bag-out processes from TRansUranic (TRU) and High-Level Waste transfer and re-packaging operations.

This patented system has been engineered to allow rapid and repeatable transfers without breaking cell containment.

The system is fully automated with a self-centering docking ring and automated locking system that is PLC controlled and equipped with a touch screen user interface. No additional alignment tools or hoists are needed for drum docking or door opening. Actuator motors, electrical components and critical maintenance items located on “cold side” of cell.
