MONOLITHIC SSiC CANISTERS FOR CANDU SPENT FUEL BUNDLES
There are currently (status June 2012) over 2 Mio. used fuel bundles only in Canada.
For their encapsulation we recommend a monolithic SSiC canister.
Together, body and lid exhibit an SSiC mass of about 8.5 kg.
More than 2 Mio. canisters are required, resulting in a total amount of 17,000 tons of SSiC.
