  • Publication number: 20190324476
    Abstract: One or more material handling vehicles of a fleet can be equipped with telematics controllers and configured for wireless communication. In different arrangements, the material handling vehicles of the fleet can communicate with each other and with a management system, in order to effect management of the fleet and of particular material handling vehicles belonging thereto.

  • Publication number: 20060257315
    Abstract: A method for activating particles for internal radiopharmaceutical use, said particles comprising precursor nuclides to be activated, is disclosed. The method comprises: directing a high-intensity laser beam onto converting means to produce an irradiating field; and irradiating said particles comprising precursor nuclides in said irradiating field to activate said precursor nuclides, thereby obtaining radiolabeled particles.

  • Publication number: 20040228433
    Abstract: A neutron amplifier assembly of the invention includes an array of fissile material which is subjected to a primary neutron flux. According to the invention a thin layer of fissile material is located on the inner surface of a hollow support cylinder of moderator material, the diameter of the cylinder being chosen such that the array is close to criticality.

  • Publication number: 20040022342
    Abstract: A method of incineration of minor actinides in nuclear reactors is presented. The minor actinides to be incinerated are embedded in at least one finite region of a core of a thermal nuclear reactor. This finite region is isolated from the rest of the core by means of a thin layer of material that absorbs thermal neutrons but is transparent to fast neutrons. This isolating material is preferably fissile, so that the neutron flux in the core is not simply filtered of its thermal neutrons, but also amplified in its fast neutrons.

  • Patent number: 5966418
    Abstract: This invention relates to a method for the destruction of plutonium (Pu) by irradiation in a light water reactor (LWR). According to the invention Pu is mixed with highly enriched uranium (U) in roughly equal weight proportion rates. This mixture is embedded in an inert matrix of a material whose components have an atomic number significantly lower than 92. LWR fuel pins are then produced therefrom and these pins are inserted in a LWR in place of certain normal LWR fuel pins. The irradiation time of the fuel pins containing Pu is significantly longer than that of said normal pins. The irradiation is preferably repeated after about 200 years without any reprocessing of the spent fuel.

  • Patent number: 5827350
    Abstract: A machine and method for separating aerosol particles in a cylindrical ultrasonic member in which the particles are agglomerated in the presence of an injected allgomeration initiator, and retaining the agglomerated particles in a filter.

  • Patent number: 5068512
    Abstract: The device disclosed comprises a high-pressure autoclave in which a moulded blank of the sample is heated by means of laser beams to the melting point and then rapidly cooled. The sample is maintained in a processing position (2) in an autoclave (1) without contact by means of an acoustic levitation device (12). Laser beams are directed through windows (19) in the autoclave onto the processing position and heat the sample. The molten sample then passes between two mutually impacting dies (20,21) by which it is crushed and thus rapidly cooled.

  • Patent number: 4848656
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the controlled disposal of an aerosol cloud by means of directed sound waves of high intensity in the audible frequency range. According to the invention, sound waves are emitted by an aircraft (8, 10) operating close to the periphery of the cloud (4). The frequency spectrum of the wave consists of a basic frequency and a superposing frequency of twice the basic frequency valve and phase-shifted in relation to the basic frequency at substantially 90.degree., so as to cause the particles to coagulate and to migrate towards the sound source, and to be collected at the aircraft.
