Material air lock systems

Material air lock systems

Material air lock systems enable the inward and outward transfer of radioactive material and contaminated items separating the airflows of the respective lock areas (hot end / cold end). Bilfinger Noell has developed special double-lid lock systems which protect the lid of the waste container against external contamination. These systems eliminate contamination spread to the cold end. 

Bilfinger Noell manufactures double-lid locks for all standard waste container sizes and special dimensions. Comprehensive accessories such as waste containers, lids, clamping systems, and handling equipment, are available for all systems.
