Tocco is an AWE facility for 1967-1968 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.
Tocco had a contract with National Lead of Ohio (Fernald) to develop induction heating coil equipment for heating uranium fuel cores. Tocco performed operational tests of these units at its Ohio facility, which took place during 1967-1968. The company received 2000 pounds of natural uranium machined fuel cores and 5600 pounds of depleted uranium machined fuel cores from NLO for testing.
The work was apparently carried out under AEC license SUB-895, issued in October, 1966 and authorized Tocco Induction Heating Div. to possess up to 7,600 pounds of uranium (natural and depleted). The license was amended in 1967 to authorize up to 16,000 pounds of uranium. A 1968 inspection of the facility by AEC identified several areas of low-level contamination on the working area floor (300-1500 dpm/100cm2) and on the machinery (3,000-4,500 dpm/100 cm2).
In 1968, the facility sent a letter to AEC stating that all materials had been returned to Fernald. In January 1969 the AEC terminated the license. There was apparently no follow-up inspection of the facility.
