URANYL NITRATE LABORATORY

CASE STUDY

OVERVIEW

MSC was approached by a client to design and install equipment to manufacture a uranium based aqueous solution.  The manufacturing process was to be performed on an industrial scale, for a multi year production project. The scope of the work consisted of:

 

  • Extensive research

  • Detailed engineering designs 

  • Design reviews

  • Permitting and licensing processes

  • Creation of new procedures 

  • Facility modifications

  • Installation and construction of equipment utilizing MSC resources and subcontractors 

  • Laboratory analytics 

  • Environmental Health and Safety reviews 

URANYL NITRATE LAB

RESULTS

MSC designed, installed, and commissioned a custom system for the client in order to safely supply high volume quantities of the uranium based aqueous solution. 

 

A continuous batch process was put forth in order to meet and exceed the total production requirements. Redundant production lines were designed to process the entire quantity of the aqueous solution for each delivery. This also allowed for downtime for any scheduled maintenance on processing equipment, while still meeting all production requirements. 

 

The timeline from contract award date to the first production day was just 17 months, with the resulting processed uranium based aqueous solution meeting the client's contractual criteria.
