The vacuum system transfers samples placed in shuttles between bench tops, glove boxes or hot cells.
The operator controls the transfer from the operator console. The operator inserts the shuttle into one of the sending/receiving stations. It is suctioned into the vacuum transfer circuit using a differential pressure generator.
A switching system directs the shuttle to the receiving station chosen by the operator. The network is two-way. Shuttles can be sent from or received at each station.
Lemer Pax vacuum transfer systems transfer radioactive sources between different hot cells or glove boxes. They are designed for industry, the civilian nuclear sector and research.
