Cask Handling Overhead Crane

Short Description:

Casks have been an essential part of the nuclear industry’s transportation of radioactive materials for decades, especially in the storage of spent fuel for plant sites around the world. Spent fuel transport has long been an important part of industrial activity at the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle, especially the reprocessing industry. Our cask handling overhead crane is a professional crane that can transport spent nuclear fuel safely and efficiently. Cask handling gantry crane is specially designed for nuclear power industry, which is used for cask handling and tranfer.

    The spent fuel casks in the shield cover can be transported and hoisted into the designated shaft according to the orders with the help of cask handling overhead crane. If necessary, the spent fuel casks are hoisted out of the shafts according to the orders, and handled into the shielded transfer casks through the transfer hoisting hole or transported to the loading position and returned the remaining fuel element to the reactor core by the method of suction.
