Some years ago engineers at Bettis Plant Machinery Inc. were charged with the task of developing a system for processing nuclear fuel rods. http://www.bpmionline.com/ to replace earlier equipment developed by Westinghouse.

The requirements were exceptionally strict, the units had to be submerged in water, but not corrode. They would be subjected to massive radiation dose, but needed a long life. They would become contaminated to the point where they could never be removed from the process area.They had to be sure than no parts or pieces could come off the unit while they were being handled.


As a result of other positive experiences with Empire Magnetics Inc. The engineers turned to our company to develop a solution: The results of a four year development and testing cycle was the unit shown in the above photo.

This assembly assigned the National stock number: 6105-01-580-1517 Is comprised of a brushless motor, resolver, planetary gearbox all in a stainless steel, oil filled pressure compensated assembly, where the materials are all selected for long term radiation resistance. The assembly has been fitted with brackets to allow remote handling in the process area. https://www.nsncenter.com/NSN/6105-01-580-1517
