We are delighted to announce that Amazon Filters has participated in and successfully achieved Fit For Nuclear (F4N) status. This cements our position within the market as approved suppliers of products and services within this specialist sector, having met the standards demanded by the industry’s top tiers and driven business improvements through a tailored action plan.
Fit For Nuclear (F4N) is a government initiative to help UK manufacturing companies become better positioned in securing work in the civil nuclear supply chain in both new power generation builds and in decommissioning projects. The programme scrutinises all aspect of the company’s business, but puts a great emphasis on quality and safety systems. It has been introduced in response to the government’s planned multi-billion pound investment in nuclear energy and designed to ensure that there are a number of potential UK suppliers available to support and benefit from this programme.
F4N has been developed by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with the support of top tier partners including Rolls-Royce, Areva and EDF Energy. These industry leaders formed the partnership to collaborate and identify key supply chain partners capable of meeting and achieving F4N status.
Typically, companies who have secured new build and decommissioning contracts will utilise the F4N Members’ directory in order to source suitable, compliant suppliers.
Neil Pizzey, Managing Director, Amazon Filters said:
“We are delighted that we have been able to meet the demanding standards required to achieve Fit For Nuclear status. Becoming part of this programme has helped us make improvements to our already robust quality and safety systems and we look forward to supporting the UK Nuclear industry in its future projects”.
Amazon Filters design and manufacture an extensive range of liquid filtration systems, providing one of the widest selections of filtration vessels, depth filters and pleated cartridges available today. As one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of filtration systems, Amazon Filters is able to offer multiple solutions to meet the filtration requirements of Nuclear operations.
Many of their products are particularly suited to the needs of this industry. Amazon’s filter cartridges are manufactured from polymers and the highly porous structure (typically 80% voids volume) means that after use they can be compressed to a small volume. In addition to their standard range of pressure vessels, they are also able to design and manufacture bespoke vessels suited to particular applications and can include integral shielding, remote telemetry and a number of other features that enable their operation to be both simple and safe.
