This Process Industries Division Event has been organised by the Process Industries Division Centres in the North West and Yorkshire Regions, part of the Process Industries Community

The nuclear industry has a need to transport and store nuclear material and waste safely in containers for up to 100 years.

Each container has to be sealed remotely with a high degree of quality applied.

 TANICS™has been jointly developed by Jacobs and Langfields to address this problem.

TANICS™ consists of a robotic welding system working with a robotic Eddy Current testing and visual inspection system, to seal the containers.

In addition to this, TANICS™ also provides a Modular Container design, Vacuum and Purge system as well as data management for Quality Control, with data and communications secured using a high grade cyber security system.

 This webinar will discuss the capability of TANICS™ as well as the applications it has been developed for.


Main Speakers: Martin Hooley (Jacobs), Wayne Griffiths Langfields Chair; Steve Cromar Chair IMechE Aberdeen Region)
