Hilman Load Rollers/Skates: Move Out of the Waste
Hilman Rollers proved to be a high capacity and low profile solution used for the onsite transport of nuclear fuel casks at a nuclear power facility. The rollers used are 150 metric tonne capacity, which are outfitted with high yield steel frames and the Accu-Roll Guidance system to fit the embedded rail track. Once outside, the casks are moved to a concrete pad site for temporary storage. The project required the Hilman Rollers to be bolted to the base plate of a specially designed, low-profile cart used to carry the spent nuclear fuel casks. The casks are transported from inside the reactor building through a set of low clearance hatch doors.
