Spent fuel is sealed in a cask's internal steel canister; there are no pumps, valves or other moving parts.
The design provides stability for the stored fuel, shielding from radiation and natural airflow around the outside of the sealed basket through air vents at the bottom and top of the cask. The vents allow heat removal from the basket wall through natural airflow, but the air does not come in direct contact with the stored fuel.
