Re: De-watering system

Fermi 2 uses the Chem Nuclear, "Rapid Dewatering System" (RDS).  This
sufficient water removal to meet burial site requirements.  It does NOT 
provide the stability required for Class B or Class C waste. To assure this, 
we dewater the resin in a Chem Nuclear, High Integrity Container (HIC). 
note that Barnwell requires stability for some Class A waste.  We process
resin in HIC's as a good practice. 
I'm curious:  How does an accelerator generate contaminated resin? 
The opinions expressed are strictly mine. 
It's not about dose, it's about trust.
