ECA Group delivers high radiation tolerant cameras for Orano's nuclear cells inspection in France.

Wednesday, July 17 2019
ECA Group provides 3 high radiation tolerant inspection TV camera systems to Axians for Orano's nuclear site.

ECA Group delivers 3 inspection TV camera systems to be used at the Axians' nuclear site in La Hague (France).

Within the cells with a high level of radiation of a nuclear reactor, the operators typically request a viewing system capable of both closely monitoring the operation itself and also surveying the whole cell environment.

For a long time,  a solution to this request was the installation of a high radiation tolerant omnidirectional viewing system, with a zoom TV camera incorporating a non-browning Chalnicon tube and installed on a remotely controlled Pan and Tilt unit.

A cost-effective alternative now exists, with a through-wall zoom CCD TV camera incorporating a swivelling & panoramic viewing head ; even if the CCD sensor has to be replaced at given times (depending on radiation level), this solution often prevails.


ECA Group offers both solutions, which enable to renew of a previous contract with Axians, a nuclear installation specialist. 

The contract included the delivery of 3 CCD systems. The cameras will be installed through the ceiling walls (thickness up to 1.5m), and their housing will incorporate a shield plug to secure the continuity of the cell biological protection.
