Amazon Filters Ltd., a F4N (Fit For Nuclear) approved manufacturer of Nuclear filtration products, has received a major order from Magnox - the management and operations contractor responsible for 12 nuclear sites and 1 hydroelectric plant in the UK.

The order, received was for the manufacture of vent filter assemblies to be used on nuclear waste storage containers used to isolate radioactive waste until it is safe for disposal. To make these nuclear waste storage containers suitable for use, it is necessary to fit a vent filter assembly to prevent any pressure build-up of flammable gases in the package and to eliminate the passage of any contaminated dust.

Following a lengthy evaluation process, Amazon Filters was chosen by Magnox as the successful vendor – as it was able to meet quality, production and schedule requirements, while also being able to offer a cost saving, helping to deliver improved value for the UK taxpayer.
