Head space gas characterization services and systems in the field (Rapid Port) and on-site (DVS)
Since our Nation began to decommission, transport and store DOE’s weapons related waste at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in Carlsbad, New Mexico, NFT™ has been involved with finding solutions to the most difficult challenges. We faced the environmental management of nuclear waste. In particular, many of the drums that were due to ship across our nation’s highways had high amounts of flammable gasses that needed to be measured, characterized and mitigated.
NFT designed, engineered, manufactured and operated several types of Drum Venting Systems at DOE Weapons Complex sites across the nation allowing each drum to be safely characterized and vented before shipment. Drum Venting Systems include: Mobile Drum Venting System in Hanford; Drum Venting System for high throughput in Savannah River Site; Rocky Flats; Los Alamos National Laboratory; Remote Drum Venting System in Idaho National Laboratory; Rapid Port Drum Venting System for Nevada Test Site and the Army; Container Venting System for Savannah River Site. All systems are designed, built and operated specifically for each site’s needs.
