Regulatory and Code Consulting for Alkali Metals

Regulatory and code consulting is another important aspect of Creative Engineers’ alkali metal expertise. With CEI’s vast background of working with alkali metals, the company has become expert in how various codes and chemical regulations apply to these unique materials. Sodium, potassium, lithium, and NaK alloys have special requirements, yet these requirements are not clearly spelled out, and the codes and regulations can be confusing. Incorrect interpretation can result in poor designs or excess expenditure of funds.

CEI has worked extensively with the International Building Code and International Fire Code, each published by the International Code Council. These two codes have been adopted directly by most states and jurisdictions. The remaining states have used these codes as the basis for their own codes and chemical regulations.

Each of our alkali metal engineering experts has from 5 to 30 years of experience.

CEI is a unique and innovative engineering company with the capability to design, build, and operate research and pilot-scale systems to meet customer needs. The rapid results obtainable from CEI’s dedicated resources often accelerate project schedules as opposed to performing the work in-house, where the researcher’s efforts are often allocated among multiple projects.

We also work with other liquid metals, such as lead, antimony, bismuth, etc.
