Non-UF6 Processing Facility

View our informative video on the operation of a Perma-Con® system
with a Negative Pressure Enclosure.

Project Scope:

  • Drums of mixed radioactive process and waste materials required opening, characterization, and repackaging.
  • Materials required a high level of isolation, containment, special handling, and special processing due to the nature of their constituents.


  • RPS acted as the prime contractor for this turn-key containment and processing facility, and was the lead design agency for the containment, air, control, and safety systems.
  • RPS lead a team of sub-contractors for engineering, erection, and acceptance testing of the facility and systems.
  • Project facility and systems included:
    • Modular panel containment (MPC) enclosure, a secondary containment processing facility.
    • Negative pressure enclosure (NPE), a 4 station gloved enclosure primary containment for material characterization and repack.
    • Fire suppression & control systems for both the MPC & NPE.
    • MPC HEPA filtration unit, controls and duct systems.
    • NPE HEPA/HEGA filtration and PID control systems.
    • Material handling and operations equipment for process control.
  • Project fast tracked and completed in 5 months.
