Grapnel for ASTRID fuel assembly fabrication

Abstract : In the past, for the PHENIX reactor for example, the fuel assembly fabrication was carried out manually. For ASTRID sodium fast reactor, these operations will have to be automated due to the dose rate and the temperature of the fuel. While the fuel assembly mounting used to be carried out on horizontal benches, this step is planned to be performed vertically for ASTRID. The LTAP laboratory has developed a grapnel to enable the bundles of fuel pins to be inserted into a hexagonal tube casing (HT) during the fuel assembly operation.
