Reactive Materials Testing

NNL offers a range of reactive materials testing utilising a suite of specialist equipment in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Our Service

  • A dedicated glovebox with an argon gas atmosphere. This enables us to deal with uranium corrosion product materials, which are often pyrophoric. The composition of gases within the hermetically sealed glovebox is constantly monitored, with oxygen levels typically <10ppm and water vapour <5ppm
  • A range of analytical techniques including calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis. This is particularly useful for customers who have graphite or fuel element debris samples for analysis
  • In support of these services we offer digital stills photography, video imaging and/or thermal imaging of glovebox operations
  • We also offer a bespoke service to customers whose needs fall outside normal parameters. Please contact us to discuss your requirements
