Westinghouse Mechanical Nozzle Seal Assembly
The degradation of materials currently used in aging nuclear power plants is a growing concern to both utilities and regulatory bodies. One such issue is primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of reactor vessel bottom-mounted instrumentation (BMI) nozzle welds in pressurized water reactor (PWR) plants. These cracks can be challenging to detect by nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, and so will often go unnoticed until a leak occurs. By that point, the repair cost and schedule can lead to significant availability losses.
