Nuclear application furnaces

Nuclear applications furnaces

ECM Technologies has, up to now, designed, studied and produced many furnaces for the nuclear sector for clients such as CEA / FBFC CERCA / AREVA. The latest projects focus on research and development for new fuel with among others:

Calcination furnaces

For the ATALANTE research unit on the MARCOULE site, this was designed to be situated in an armored box and therefore be fully assembled and disassembled by remote handling.

Sintering furnace

For CEA CADARACHE BAG implanted furnace, ECM has designed this furnace in partnership with the CEA LEFCA.

MOX Sintering furnace

For MÉLOX AREVA, furnace replacement, while integrating several years of client feedback concerning a sintering furnace of this type.

Existing furnaces

  • Regular maintenance interventions on testing furnaces on various CEA sites.

  • Moving, refurbishing and setting ATEX standards on operating furnaces on the AREVA FBFC site. ECM has created an independent team for this sector, made out of experienced staff in the nuclear field.

All these technicians are regularly CEFRI trained (upstream and downstream of the fuel) and validated DATR. An employee is also PCR trained and designated in order to respond to client imposed constraints and ensure the compliance procedures. Being entitled to permanently access many CEA and AREVA sites, they can quickly reply to any client request for intervention.
