Non-Destructive Testing Machines for the Nuclear Fuel Industry

The nuclear fuel industry is dominated by the demand for light water reactors. Uranium is a clean energy source where one uranium fuel pellet can create energy equivalent to one ton of coal. However, uranium needs to be mined and processed before ready to go into a reactor. This creates the need for safe manufactured components (ie. fuel assemblies) that will not fail.

Salem Design and Manufacturing is dedicated to helping manufacturers avoid huge safety risks by producing custom non-destructive testing machines to inspect components to prevent catastrophic and costly failures.
