Inspection Ring

Immediately after a can is lifted out of a plug in the storage facility, it is inspected using the Inspection Ring. The status and condition of the can is inspected before it is lifted in a protective container.

The Inspection Ring is specifically intended for:

  • Identification of the number of the can
  • Visual check of the general condition of the can, such as the shape and any corrosion to it
  • Indication of any radioactivity on the outside of the can
