Water Regimes of Nuclear Plants

An inseparable part of nuclear power plant operation is the correct setting of chemical regimes, whose aim is to reduce the overall block corrosion, followed by reducing the formation of radiation fields.

  • Evaluation of chemical regimes of steam cycles
    • evaluation of chemical regimes of conventional steam cycles and nuclear power plants steam cycles with regard to their optimization
  • Ion chromatography

  • Evaluation of chemical regimes of the primary circuit and the formation of radiation fields
    • evaluation of the impact of chemical regimes, technical and technological aspects on the formation of radiation fields around nuclear power plants and the radioactivity of the primary circuit coolant
    • support for chemical regimes monitoring and analysis of corrosion and transport activities
    • suggestion and review of the impact of various measures in the chemical regime, surface pre-treatment, decontamination, material composition and technology (e.g. coolant filtration) on the block radiation situation
  • Chemical analysis of inactive and active samples (ion chromatography, spectrophotometry, etc.)
    • measuring the concentrations of substances in the clean to ultra-clean waters
    • evaluation of attributes of ion-exchanger
