The Post Irradiation Examination Laboratory – PIEL was designed as support for the nuclear industry, especially as support for CANDU type power plants. PIEL is located adjacent to the TRIGA reactor and is interconnected to the TRIGA reactor pool through a water channel. Thanks to this design, it is possible to examine in the Hot Cells from PIEL samples of freshly irradiated fuel or structural materials from the reactor.
The Post-Irradiation Examination Laboratory (PIEL) is equipped with facilities and equipment that allow testing, handling and examining the nuclear fuel and structural materials from nuclear power plants, manufacturing sealed sources of nuclear radiation.
