Chemical and Metallurgical Research Facility (Wing 9) (CMR (TA-3-29))
remote fabrication. Multipurpose/ weapons. separations (wings 5 and 7)
full capability for analytical chemistry and metallurgical studies on small samples of nuclear materials in support of national security programs, including support of plutonium pit manufacturing and surveillance programs. 7 wings, each with own power, not all running, cells mostly clean can be entered. 7 wings, each with own power, not all running
7 wings, each with own power, not all running. hot cells in Wing 9
The central corridor cells are 8’ x 31’ x 11’ high but the entry from the crane bay to the central corridor is a door that is only ~7’ high. 10-ton crane for interior sample movement, 25-ton crane for equipment.
The Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) is the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy's only designated nuclear energy user facility. Through peer-reviewed proposal processes, the NSUF provides researchers access to neutron, ion, and gamma irradiations, post-irradiation examination and beamline capabilities at Idaho National Laboratory and a diverse mix of university, national laboratory and industry partner institutions.
