Problem Details

Methods of "horse tailing" large components

Category: Deactivation & Decommissioning > Dismantlement & Material Disposition
Published: 2/16/2008 Last Updated: 3/20/2008

We are raising components into a sleeve, turning the component to twist the sleeve and then applying tape to the twisted portion before the sleeve is cut with electrical cable cutters. Then We fold the hanging sleeve up around the component so it looks like the letter "J: and tape it off. A "diaper" bag containing absorbent pads is then installed to collect any additional liquid that might drip out. Occasionally, We get a few drops of liquid out the cut area before we cover the end with tape. We intend to let the component hang in the air longer to get more residual water to drip before doing the "horsetail".
