Amber Precast not only provides services to industries working in complex and extreme environments in the form of design, estimating, mixing and moulding but have a range of products that are available to potential users.

Currently Amber Precast is the sole UK manufacturer of Standard Density (SD) and High Density (HD) Concrete Nuclear Waste Containers

6m3 Reinforced Concrete Box (6m3 RCB)

The 6m3 Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) is a Type IP-2 Nuclear Waste Container designated for use on the waste consigners site for interim storage, transport to and final disposal in the UK geological disposal facility (GDF). This container type can be manufactured in a normal density concrete mix or a high desity concrete mix which provides enhanced shielding capability. The 6m3 RCB has a wet poured lid which is applied at the waste consigners site.

The 6 cubic metre box waste container is used to manufacture ‘shielded waste packages’
which signifies that it can be handled without the need for remote techniques and can be
transported without the need for additional radiation shielding. This is achieved by the
container being manufactured from reinforced concrete with walls 240mm thick which
provide the necessary containment and radiation shielding of the radionuclide contents of the waste package.

As well as being suitable for disposal in a geological disposal facility (GDF), 6 cubic metre concrete box waste packages are specified in a manner such as to qualify them as transport packages in their own right and are therefore capable of being transported through the public domain without the need for additional protection. Specifically, 6 cubic metre concrete box waste packages are classed as Type IP-2 transport packages as defined by the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material. This limits their contents to such as can satisfy the requirements for low specific activity (LSA) material or for surface contaminated objects (SCOs). 

Amber Ptrecast are currently working on the design of a alternative lid that will make the 6m3 RCB a much more flexible container providing additional oppotunities for waste consigners.

Direct Contact Handleable Containers (DCC's)

Solid Waste 

The solid waste Direct Contact Handleable Container (DCC) is a Type IP-2 Nuclear Waste Container designated for use on the waste consigners site for interim storage, transport to and final disposal in the UK geological disposal facility (GDF).The solid waste DCC's are available in two forms, a thin walled and a thick walled version. These containers can be manufactured using a normal density, a high density, or a maximum density fibre reinforced concrete mix. 

The two versions of the solid waste DCC's have identical external features and dimensions, only the internal cavity is different. This allows common handling plant and equipment.

The solid waste DCC containers are used to manufacture ‘shielded waste packages’ which signifies that it can be handled without the need for remote techniques and can be
transported without the need for additional radiation shielding. This is achieved by the
container being manufactured from fibre reinforced concrete with walls 100mm and 200mm thick, in one of three density mixes which provides the necessary containment and radiation shielding of the radionuclide contents of the waste package.

As well as being suitable for disposal in a geological disposal facility (GDF), the solid waste DCC's are specified in a manner such as to qualify them as transport packages in their own right and are therefore capable of being transported through the public domain without the need for additional protection. Specifically, the solid waste DCC packages are classed as Type IP-2 transport packages as defined by the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material. This limits their contents to such as can satisfy the requirements for low specific activity (LSA) material or for surface contaminated objects (SCOs).

The solid waste DCC's also can be housed in a Standard Waste Transport Container allowing them to be transported without the waste being fixed within the DCC.

Wet Waste

The wet waste Direct Contact Handleable Container (DCC) is a Type IP-2 Nuclear Waste Container designated for use on the waste consigners site for interim storage, transport to and final disposal in the UK geological disposal facility (GDF).The wet waste DCC is available in one form but can be manufactured using a normal density, a high density, or a maximum density fibre reinforced concrete mix.

The wet waste DCC has identical external features and dimensions as that of the Solid waste DCC's but does have an additional port for the lost paddle mixer. The common form allows common handling plant and equipment across the DCC range.

The wet waste DCC container is used to manufacture ‘shielded waste packages’
which signifies that it can be handled without the need for remote techniques and can be
transported without the need for additional radiation shielding. This is achieved by the
container being manufactured from fibre reinforced concrete with a minimum wall thickness of 100mm in one of three density mixes which provides the necessary containment and radiation shielding of the radionuclide contents of the waste package.

As well as being suitable for disposal in a geological disposal facility (GDF), the wet waste DCC is specified in a manner such as to qualify it as transport packages in their own right and are therefore capable of being transported through the public domain without the need for additional protection. Specifically, the wet waste DCC packages are classed as Type IP-2 transport packages as defined by the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material. This limits their contents to such as can satisfy the requirements for low specific activity (LSA) material or for surface contaminated objects (SCOs).

The wet waste DCC also can be housed in a Standard Waste Transport Container allowing it to be transported without the waste being fixed within the DCC.
