The assessment of the operational characteristics of the filtration function used during the recirculation phase of safety injection system (SI) and containment spray system (SS), in the event of a primary system break in the containment, has been performed by the “Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire” (IRSN) for the French pressurised reactors (58 reactors). Those one have been designed according with the RG 1.82 (rev. 1). The IRSN has focused in particular on the CPY series, 900 MWe 3 loops pressurised water reactors (28 reactors). A general overview of the literature has been conducted between October 1999 and November 2000, which resulting in defining of an approach methodology and the writing of technical ...
