UEKhK: SRW Treatment Costs Go Down 14 Times

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, April 20, 2017. Rosatom’s Ural Electrochemical Works (UEKhK) based in Novouralsk completed the upgrades of its monitoring and metering instruments and its process control system used at the solid radioactive waste treatment department, the company press service reports.

As a result of these upgrades, the monitoring of SRW treatment and that of equipment and security systems is now fully automated. Additionally, the SRW treatment costs were reduced by fourteen times.

The automated process control system allows for efficient monitoring of VIKMAX 400 grinding unit that was recently launched at the plant and helped reduce the amount of solid radioactive waste. Instead of using the earlier twenty-five surveillance appliances spread across three control panels, the monitors can now rely on two equally functional automated work places. Both work places allow for a complete monitoring procedure.
