  • BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor

    BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor

    Wozair Limited have been selected to manufacture Blast Protection Dampers for the Jules Horowitz Reactor (RHJ) which is currently under construction at Cadarache in Southern France. The RJH is a Material Test Reactor (MTR) named after the 20th century French nuclear scientist Jules Horowitz and is expected to begin operation in 2021. The reactors construction was recommended by ESFRI as a replacement for the European Union’s existing materials testing reactors, which were all built in the 1960’s, and are expected to reach the end of their service lives by 2020. Blast Tube Array (BTA) will be provided for the programme in both single and modular sizes of up to 2440W/1300H and 2500W/1000H. The dampers are located on the MVK and MVL backup networks between the external AHU and between the exhaust fans and external fans. Blast systems will also be included on the fresh air ducting and exhaust of cooling units EIS2. The Wozair BTA is a technical revolution in blast protection, addressing several technical challenges whilst providing improved safety and protection. Years of research and development have resulted in an elegant philosophy to wave attenuation that breaks down the blast overpressure in a static device. The result is a lower pressure drop, no moving parts and maintenance free operational lifetime in an extremely cost-efficient product. Wozair Limited will be providing full documentation in dual-language for the project to meet French standards with definition and follow up folders for quality, traceability and workers qualifications. Documentation for the qualification of the BTA under the project conditions will also be provided. Wozair are thrilled to be a part of the project which is the largest new platform for irradiation experiments in support of Generation II and III reactors, Generation IV technologies, and radioisotope production.

  • Wozair (USA) Accreditation

    Wozair (USA) Accreditation

    Wozair receive Buy American and Buy American accreditation at their USA facility in March this year

    Wozair are delighted to have received Buy America and Buy American accreditation in March this year at their USA facility, enabling them to bid and win their first project under this scheme for designing and manufacturing of bespoke heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) components for the Staten Island ferries in New York City. The project consists of manufacturing a range of Fire Dampers, Blast Dampers and Control Dampers for 3 x 320ft vessels. The compliance has created a host of opportunities for the company who also have manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, the USA as well as their primary base in the UK. The Buy America Act is the name for a group of domestic content restrictions that attach to specific funds administered by the American Department of Transportation (DOT) and is part of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982. Separate and distinct from the Buy America Act is the Buy American Act, passed in congress in 1933 which only applies to “federal” procurement. It does not apply to DOT funded state/local projects because, while the source of the money for those projects is federal, such purchases are not made directly by the federal government. Both Acts seek to increase transparency and ensure federal agencies prioritise purchase of American-made goods in compliance with the existing law. It enables Wozair to bid for jobs directly on the US government portal. The penalties for non-compliance are serious and include civil or criminal False Claims Act Violations, suspension or debarment. Wozair are currently bidding for a number of exciting projects under the legislation which they are hoping to win and expand their client portfolio.

    Cruise Control

    We have been developing brand new cabin units, of which there are now five variations to suit different requirements and use cases.

    Wozair Cabin Unit Ventilation products are industry-leading in terms of quality, durability and performance. They are constructed from galvanised steel, and we install them with a manual lever for damper adjustment as standard. Depending on the mode, they have an airflow of 200/500 m3/h. We also offer an optional heater with PWN or ON/OFF management system, and a pressure dependent or independent operation system. Our engineering has delivered Cabin Unit Ventilation products that are far quieter, and offer lower pressure drop, than you'll find elsewhere.They are available in five variations to suit different use cases. See an overview of them below. B MAR LS: Single duct cabin unit, Manual type. For installation in the ceiling. B MAR LL / B MAR: Single duct cabin unit, Manual type. B MAR 230: Single duct cabin unit, Manual type. Heater option available, with PWN or ON / OFF management system. B MAR VAV: Automatic single cabin unit with pressure dependent or independent operation system. Air flow up to 500m3/h depending on model. Constructed from galvanised steel with air connection to DN 100 / 200. Hygienic mineral wool certified to VDI 6022 for plenum insulation. All models meet B15 RINA Certificate / USCG Approval.
