A semi-automatic pneumatic transport system for nuclear reactors is described. The sealed polyethylene capsules containing the sample are placed into transport containers. Ten such containers are placed manually into a feeding device. All subsequent operations (irradiation, removal of the capsule from the container, and transport of the capsule to the laboratory for activity measurement) are automated. Total time from the completion of irradiation to the beginning of measurement is 10–20 sec.
