Storage cont'd


DOE-HDBK-1132-99
Because many state governments have the authority to designate traffic routes
for shipment of radioactive material, close coordination with state and local
agencies is recommended.
The shipping and receiving area in a PPHF should accommodate the convoy of
safe-secured-transport (SST), including its escort vehicles. The area should be
free of any obstacles (other buildings and structures) during loading and
unloading of the plutonium payload to establish a clear line-of-sight by site
security forces.
Radiation monitoring equipment should be available in the shipping and
receiving area for surveying the radiation level on the surface of the SST and
the containers during receipt of radioactive material from off-site. The shipping
and receiving area may also be equipped with a decontamination port if a
radiation survey indicates that the surface of a container is contaminated.
Storage. A PPHF should include a storage facility (such as a vault-type room)
in the process area to provide storage and staging functions. The following
features should be considered in the design of the storage facility:
Operation of the storage vault should comply with the strict regulation of
fire loading.
Packaging and unpackaging of plutonium in the storage vault area
should provide for minimizing the build-up of packaging material.
Storage racks and shelves should be designed and constructed to meet
seismic requirements.
Spacing between storage units should be sufficient to satisfy criticality
controls.
Layout of storage racks should minimize radiation exposure to operating
personnel and provide line-of-sight by safeguards and security.
