Process equipment for the nuclear industry

Process equipment for the nuclear industryThe Hosokawa Group is a trusted and reliable partner for your challenging materials processing and systems engineering requirements with a proven track record within the nuclear and associated industries.

Hosokawa Micron B.V. offers process equipment for nuclear fuel (MOX), reprocessing plutonium and depleted uranium, drying and immobilisation of contaminated materials.

Mixing nuclear materials

The Nauta® conical screw mixer has proven its usefulness in the production of nuclear fuel. It can be used for mixing uranium oxides, for mixing plutonium (recovered from used reactor fuel) with depleted uranium in the manufacturing of mixed oxide (MOX) fuel and also for the reprocessing of weapons-grade plutonium (from military sources) to manufacture nuclear fuel rods for the production of electricity.

Drying & Immobilisation of contaminated materials

The Nauta® vacuum dryer can be used to increase the dry mass content of wash liquids. It is also suitable for drying (low) contaminated materials prior to immobilisation for long term waste storage.

The immobilisation process can be performed using a Flexomix mixer/agglomerator. It mixes a solidifying mixture with contaminated wet nuclear material and water.

Related technologies

Besides mixing, drying and agglomeration equipment, the Hosokawa Group can also supply size reduction/compaction equipment and containment solutions for the processing and of handling hazardous materials.

From individual unit to bespoke system solution

Hosokawa Micron B.V. offers process equipment and technologies from individual modular concept units to large scale bespoke system solutions. Our principle is to deliver high performance yet affordable solutions that meet our customers' demands and long term challenges.
