The h’elcom range has been supporting the French nuclear power industry for many years. From furniture and changing rooms for operating facilities to dynamic containment airlock for decommissioning, we can meet the needs of the entire life cycle of a nuclear facility.

Based on our R&D capabilities, we have created a composite profile that enables you to store more contaminated material in the same volume, thanks to reduced outgassing.Elcom and H’Factory are here to support you and offer you the most reliable technical and economic solution, in line with your specifications.

Which equipment dedicated to nuclear industry ?

Elcom is a expert in the decontamination equipment: In case of contamination, airlock systems may include decontamination equipment such as showers, air showers, or wash stations. These equipment facilitate the decontamination of personnel or materials before entering or exiting the controlled area, reducing the spread of radioactive contamination.

Elcom has designed numerous airlocks housing and doors to provide a secure seal and prevent the transfer of air, gases, or radioactive particles between different areas.

Shower, air lock and wash station airlock systems are crucial equipment used in the nuclear environment for the effective decontamination of personnel and materials. They play an essential role in preventing the spread of radioactive contamination.

Decontamination showers allow workers to get rid of contaminants potentially present on their bodies after being exposed to contaminated areas. Upon entering the shower, they wash under a special shower which removes radioactive particles. This procedure is essential to minimize the risk of internal and external exposure.

Air locks, also known as air decontamination locks, act as isolation chambers. When a worker or equipment leaves a controlled area, the air lock blows clean air to remove any radioactive particles adhering to skin or clothing. This avoids contamination of clean areas.

Washing stations are used to decontaminate equipment or objects. These stations make it possible to clean contaminated surfaces and rid them of radioactive particles.

Together, this decontamination equipment plays a vital role in protecting workers and the environment from the risks associated with radioactivity in nuclear facilities. They help maintain a high level of safety throughout the life cycle of nuclear installations.

What are the standards in the nuclear industry?

Global standards set up by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standards are used in the nuclear sector :

  • ISO 19443: This standard provides guidelines for implementing a quality management system in organizations involved in the nuclear sector, including nuclear power plants, fuel cycle facilities, and research reactors.
  • ISO 27001: This standard specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system, which is crucial for protecting sensitive information in the nuclear industry.

As the industry has the highest safety constrains, dedicated agencies have created their own standards:

  • IAEA Safety Standards: The IAEA develops safety standards and guides that cover all aspects of nuclear safety, including the design, operation, and decommissioning of nuclear facilities. These standards provide a framework for member states to establish and maintain a high level of nuclear safety.
  • European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group (ENSREG)
