New Design for Manual Ultra High Pressure (UHP) Water Jetting Lance

Category: Decontamination > Mechanical Surface Removal > Ultra-High Pressure Water
Reference # : Model No :

Ultra high pressure (UHP) water jetting is a known very versatile method of decontamination. Manual operations with lances add huge levels of dexterity to any operation, but introduce risks, e.g. injury from joint failure. As on a lance, some joints are close to the torso of the operator; encasement of these joints minimizes the risk of injury should a joint fail. Working with Nuclear Technologies, a manual lance of a type typically used at Sellafield has been adapted.

Benefits

Improved worker safety. Inexpensive adaptation.

Limitations

This technology is still under development and is not commercially available yet.
