Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E (Ensa)  successfully carried out the hydrostatic tests of three heat exchangers of the RJH reactor. These heat exchangers will be part of the primary circuit of the RJH that is built in the CEA premises in Cadarache (France).

The objectives for the RJH reactor are: the irradiation of materials and fuels used in current and future nuclear reactors, to guarantee the safety of these reactors and the production of radioisotopes for medical purposes. The RJH reactor will replace the Osiris reactor (Saclay).
