Spent Fuel Canister Welding

Canister WeldingPCI developed a canister welding system called the Terminator™ capable of performing the closure seal welds on all current designs of dry fuel storage canisters. This third-generation design was designed to produce high quality welds, significantly reduce radiation exposure during welding activities, adapt to all canister designs, generate outstanding welding performance, produce excellent quality, and be able to work in all types of environments. Field performance from past and current contracts at multiple plant sites has shown that the design objectives have been achieved and PCI also has the machining capabilities if a canister requires re-opening.
