Solenoid valve problems needed identification and fixing. Throughout the nuclear power industry, equipment suppliers are exiting the nuclear marketplace. Utilities and component manufacturers are turning to innovative methods for replacement of
A nuclear plant was having mechanical seal failures too often. In boiling water reactors (BWRs), there are reactor water cleanup (RWCU) systems that are designed to maintain a reactor’s water quality by filtration and ion exchange. Water quality
Introduction: The rise in total generation capacity of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar is resulting in traditional “base load” coal generation plants being more frequently used to follow fluctuating electricity demand i.e. “peak
We understand that your plant is likely operating with quicker start-ups and shutdowns, and more frequent load changes than it was originally designed. These operating modes can cause pre-mature bearing wear or, in some cases, catastrophic failure
Canned motor pumps are widely considered the safest and most reliable pumping solution. The biggest benefit of a Canned Motor Pump is that there is no mechanical seal that leaks to the atmosphere. Instead of using a mechanical seal in the pump, the
Introduction: The rise in total generation capacity of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar is resulting in traditional “base load” fossil generation plants being more frequently asked to follow fluctuating electricity demand, i.e.
