Package Type

Designed as a UF6 sample bottle, which can be used in a suitable Type A package for the transport of samples in accordance with the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material.


Not applicable, sample container only.


The Sample Bottle consists of a stainless steel UF6 sample bottle (Design No 2926). The bottle is designed so that the product tube (being that part of the bottle that carries the UF6) can be disconnected from the valve at a flange. The product tube has a plain cylindrical cavity providing a wide aperture which ensures that there are no traps for residual material: this facilitates thorough cleaning to ensure that there will be no contamination of samples.


The sample bottles are pressure tested, leak tested and approved in accordance with an envelope of requirements that encompasses the safety requirements of the IAEA TECDOC 608, ADR, RID, ICAO, IATA and 49CFR regulations, and the ISO 7195 and ANSI N14.1 standards. Leakage tests are carried out with a test pass level of 1 x 10-3 bar cc/s SLR (0.1 Pa L/s).
