This conference proceedings examines the most recent research and developments related to the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation.  Held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in February 2004, this proceedings had sessions on safety assessment and regulatory requirements, experimental work, analytical work, and industry solutions.  The proceedings present the papers presented as well as a summary of discussions that took place.





Results of Tests with Large Sacrificial and Self-cleaning Strainers and the Installation at Ringhals 2

Nuclear Energy Agency

The paper describes briefly activities performed by Vattenfall Utveckling AB at Älvkarleby Laboratory as part of the qualification programme for the new ECCS strainers at PWR plant Ringhals 2 based on the “robust solution” with large sacrificial strainers and a self-cleaning “wing-strainer” of same type as used for the five modified Swedish BWR plants. With the new knowledge gained from several BWR strainer projects following the Barsebäck strainer incident in 1992, the functioning of ECCS strainers for PWR was re-evaluated. The upgrading at Ringhals 2, a 3-loop Westinghouse plant having fibreglass and mineral wool as insulation, was the ...
