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.
Improved worker safety. Inexpensive adaptation.
This technology is still under development and is not commercially available yet.
