WHY CHOOSE Remote handling tongs

  • Reinforced biological protection : the design includes reinforced biological protection along the axis (adjustment of mechanical play and selection of materials used)
  • Ergonomics : gripper heads are easy to disconnect and change, the knob opens the jaws and locks them in position

Remote handling tongs : Presentation

The Lemer Pax handling tongs are comprised of a body and a stainless steel coupler to connect the specific grippers for the object to be handled.

The gripper heads are easy to disconnect and can be changed remotely. The knob on the body opens and tightens the jaws. 


Remote handling tongs : Applications

Lemer Pax handling tongs are designed both for remote operation in hot cells for radioisotopes and for work in contaminated environments.



Made according to standards or customised, the bellows are defined by how they are attached to the hot cell (BE22 or BE33 ring) and the length of the rod (as required by the depth of the cell or where the source to be handled is positioned). The sealed coupler is incorporated in the bellows and is used to connect the rod and the gripper head.

Alternatively, the bellows can also be designed to fit on glove ports (contact us).

Lemer Pax sealed bellows maintain hot cell containment at handling tool ports.
