Foreign Object Removal System (FORS)
Diakont’s radiation-tolerant Foreign Object Removal System (FORS) provides the ideal solution for a nuclear plant’s Foreign Object Search and Retrieval (FOSAR) needs.
This Foreign Object Removal System complements a plant station’s FME program within reactor cavities and spent fuel pools. By providing a solution to identify and retrieve foreign materials left in reactor components, plant safety is increased while preventing catastrophic damage to the system’s integrity and plant safety.
Due to its compact chassis, this system is designed to reach difficult-to-access locations such as fuel top and bottom nozzles near the core plate, refueling cavities, the BWR annulus, and more.
Inovative Design for Unique Solutions
By integrating the Diakont D40 camera with the FORS tool, optimal solutions are available for scanning, locating, and removing foreign materials when paired with various gripper heads. Two extraction options are available to support the inspection. The pole deployment method increases stability for challenging applications, whereas a cable is better equipped for less complex jobs.
Flexible Gripper Design
With a modular design, the variety in grippers allows for the most efficient configuration to be selected based on an object’s shape and size when extracting it. The interchangeable gripper types include a front gripper, bucket gripper, reverse gripper, and parallel plane gripper. An electric gripping mechanism is also optional, with safety springs to prevent the gripper from unclenching in the case of power loss.
