Test Facility for Nuclear Applications

Ejector Test Program Begins for High Profile Nuclear Projects

Transvac's R&D test facility was in full swing for nuclear clients. Innovative new Ejector designs (also called Eductors or Jet Pumps) were performance tested at its dedicated Test Facility to entrain radio-active waste simulant across a number of operating conditions. The test programme determined the process conditions where 'cavitation' occurred and produced performance curves. The comprehensive test programme allowed the clients engineering team to design with confidence radio-active waste transfer systems using Ejector technology.

The Transvac facilities will include liquid flow lines for high, medium & low pressure testing (in excess of 100 barg), as well as solids handling systems.
