Manufacturing and Engineering - Demilitarization

Disposing of excess or obsolete ammunition and explosives is critical for the safety of the ammunition stockpile and maintaining storage space for current items. Current methods utilized include: automated high pressure washout, breakdown, steam-out, open burning, open detonation, and CO2 pellet blasting. We have facilities and capability for white phosphorous conversion, contained detonation, yellow-D conversion, APE 1236 deactivation furnace, depleted uranium demil, and magnesium reclamation.
