Fluidic systems have been developed for handling toxic and corrosive fluids in U.K. nuclear plant. Recent work carried out in the CEFT department in collaboration with UKAEA, Risley, which has led to the installation of plant hardware is described. The systems include: single and double-acting pumps with no-moving-part driving units, experiments on multistage pumps and the effect of temperature on pumping rate, fluidic control of mixer-settlers, and pulse-columns. Also described are applications in ventilation plant control and the effect of argon controlling air in a vortex amplifier.
