Trentec Spent Fuel Pool Gates

Trentec Spent Fuel Pool Gates are used in new construction as well as replacements for existing power stations. The Trentec design has a proven track record in its international install base as an integral feature in sustaining a reliable spent fuel management system. Regardless of size requirements, all Trentec Spent Fuel Pool Gates are equipped with environmentally qualified inflatable seals, designed to ensure bubble-tight sealing and prevent unwanted leaks. Fabrication options include single or double seals and/or a two-gate assembly separated by a monitoring chamber. Installation requires welding of the frame to the spent fuel pool liner. Routine seal replacement required.

Curtiss-Wright Nuclear performs routine field maintenance and supplies replacement parts for all OEM spent fuel pool gates.
