Description

Package Type

Designed as a reusable Type A / IP Package to the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material.

Certification

Certified as a general purpose Type A / IP package, which is generally used for the carriage of a wide range of radioactive material.

Description

The DRUMPAK consists of a robust stainless steel containment system incorporating a sealed closure. The DRUMPAK is a family of three (Design Nos 2948A / 2949A / 2950A), designed to carry a wide range of radioactive material. The large cavity allows flexibility in packing contents and will accommodate all the commonly used 200 litre waste drums; large pieces of activated plant and items of manufactured equipment. The stainless steel container provides a robust finish, needing very little maintenance.

Containment

The containment system comprises of two independent barriers. Primary containment is provided by the inner packaging or material forming the contents and secondary containment provided by the DRUMPAK body.

Approved Contents

  • Type A classified radioactive material in solid form (e.g. manufactured equipment, activated items and waste), Low Specific Activity (LSA), or Surface Contaminated Objects (SCO) material suitably packed
  • Maximum gross weight of DRUMPAK is 450kg (see table below). This could potentially be increased subject to safety review by the approval authority
  • The contents must be packed in such a manner so as to prevent movement or point contact during normal conditions of transport. The contents are also limited to ensure that the external radiation levels of the package, during routine and normal conditions of transport, as loaded and consigned for transport, comply with regulatory limits

Modes of Transport

By road, rail, sea, air and inland waterway.
