Design of new calorimeter ready

calorimeterAs a part of Task 3.2 within WP3, KEP Technologies finished the design of the new calorimeter, ready to house 200 liter waste drums.
The new and innovative design will allow to measure with even more accuracy the total heat generated during natural decay of the isotopes present in the waste drum, thanks to a better temperature control of the calorimeter, the reduction of environmental temperature variation impact on the measurement and the determination by pre-heating of the thermal characteristics of the drum to be characterized.

KEP Technologies has now started purchasing the different pieces to build the calorimeter, which should be ready for testing later this year.
