Certification testing for the ES-2 shipping package

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The ES-2 is a multiconfiguration, Type B fissile material shipping package, designed by the Y-12 Nuclear Packaging Systems. It is unique in that a castable refractory material performs primary impact absorption and thermal insulation duties. This material, unlike the insulation often used in fissile material packages, such as Celotex and various foams, is fireproof at temperatures associated with Type B package testing (800 C). The ES-2 is designed to permit the use of three different containment vessels which can result in as many as six different configurations. Eight prototype units were manufactured and successfully tested to US Federal Regulatory Requirements.
