    Hello and welcome to PF Sageese. I'm new here too, but maybe I can help you out.

    Lets start with a little more information about what your trying to accomplish like:

    What are you trying to handle? and how are you wanting to handle it? Is this similar to a conveyor or a robotic arm?

    Second, how is the environment hazardous? Is it poison gas, explosive dust, or high temperature?

    Any information you can provide could help us provide you with better suggestions.

    It is a robotic arm or small machine that can be control with remote to move in small tunnels. It is a nuclear plant environment and it is high temperature environment. The question is just the way it is, because it is given to me to give a presentation on it at a particular job interview.
