The plant at Sablé, which opened in September 1992, was designed by CONSERVATOME and built by GAME, a subsidiary of SGN.

Irradiation is performed: by the pallet, maximum dimensions 1000 x 1200 x 2000 mm, on two separate lines around a plane source, enabling low doses to be administered at very competitive rates, with no human intervention, from the automatic storage/retrieval machine to the unit; maximum capacity 3,500,000 Curies.

The SABLE plant implements a fully automatic system. Irradiation is carried out directly by the pallet or big bag, with no human intervention, using an automatic storage/retrieval machine.

Maximum pallet dimensions:

  • 1 x 1,2 x 2 m et 1.000 kgs
  • capacity 50,000 pallets per year
