Description :

The 6th CNS International Steam Generator conference focused on nuclear steam generator technology from degradation root-cause assessment to life-cycle management to inspection and maintenance.

Keywords :

Steam generator life cycle, vertical steam generators, steam generator replacement, flow-induced vibration, fluidelastic instability model, gasket sealing performance, nuclear conference proceedings

Keywords inside documents :

steam ,generator ,alloy ,figure ,tubes ,conference ,degradation ,canada ,corrosion ,plant ,international ,inspection ,pressure ,deposit ,model ,vibration ,surface ,candu ,application ,crack

These proceedings focus on wide ranging topics on nuclear steam generator technology from degradation root-cause assessment to life-cycle management to inspection and maintenance as well as functional and structural performance characteristics; it also focuses on equipment architecture and design. The 6th conference has again adopted the theme: “Management of Real-Life Equipment Conditions & Solutions for the Future”.


This theme is particularly appropriate given the current renewed focus on the long-term reliability of Alloy 800 steam generator tubing material; and on the life-cycle-management measures necessary to enhance that reliability given the lessons-learned from recent and ongoing operating experience.


The objective is to explore the current condition of existing steam generation equipment, with emphasis on solutions for improving performance and service-life for existing equipment and the application of this knowledge to the next generation of replacement and new-build steam generators. Heat exchangers, condensers and balanceof- plant technology for nuclear power generation will also be discussed.


The papers will be of interest to those involved in the operation, maintenance, inspection, repair, replacement, life assessment, manufacture, design or research of steam generators and associated systems; also of heat exchangers, condensers and balance-of-plant equipment in nuclear power generation applications.

 

The proceedings include 159 papers, presentations and the transcripts of the questions and answer sessions.
