ManFReD is a remotely operated stainless steel manipulator designed specifically for reactor decommissioning. MANFRED is available with a number of tools for tasks such as cutting and material removal.
The MANFRED working fluid is compatible with nuclear reactor coolant. ISE has designed and manufactured dual spatially correspondent MANFRED manipulators for the decommissioning of Reactor Site 2 at Three Mile Island. The success of this project was dependent on ISE developing a special working fluid for the hydraulic system.
