AMCOT signAMCOT

AMCOT is an AWE facility for 1961-1963 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

The American Manufacturing Company of Texas (AMCOT) conducted specialized tube elongation and billet piercing tests on uranium metal for National Lead Company of Ohio (Fernald). The tube elongation tests were conducted from July to September 1961 and involved approximately 7 tons of uranium. The billet piercing tests were conducted from June to September 1962 and involved approximately 23 tons of uranium. Both NLO and AMCOT employees participated in the tests.

During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
