The Absorber Rod Drive Mechanism (ARDM) Flask is a leak tight, shielded, inert atmosphere flask used for handling of control and safety rod drive mechanism, diverse safety rod drive mechanism, failed fuel localization mechanism and other slender assemblies.
The components transported may be contaminated by sodium residues from the primary sodium circuit, so it is essential for the flask to be leak tight, lead shielded and maintained under argon atmosphere, so that the contamination does not spread, and sodium to air/moisture exposure is prevented.
The system consists of:
Material: IS2062 & SS 304L
Dimensions: Height 22.5m ; Dia. 0.5m
