High integrity duct seals for the UK Atomic Weapons Establishment
Checkmate Flexible Engineering was approached by the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) about a new project. They required temporary duct seals for use in a highly contaminated environment.
CFE not only successfully designed and built a set of seals, but also had to exactly replicate the section of the equipment in which they would be used, in order that working conditions could be replicated. A test standard was developed and agreed with AWE technical staff.
