Everything for the professional welder menu base PWP99MB Nuclear Plasma Torch

28 June 2012

Further orders for nuclear industry torches

Further orders have been received for the “nuclear version” of the innovative PWP99MB plasma welding torch for the Sellafield vitrification plant. This version requires the use of special radiation resistant materials in the construction as well as being able to offer a quick-change facility for remote operation.

Such a high specification requirement is due to the fact that they are used in very high radiation areas where direct human operation and manipulation is not possible. This also applies to the power, gas and coolant connections to the welding plant where specialist connectors are specified.

The order follows a similar consignment specified by Sellafield Ltd in October last year.
