Highlights


12/2019

Sag Measurement Tool PRESAM 220 and PRESAM 540 developed and deployed in more than 90 coolant channels of PHWRs. Sag measurement uncertainty estimation was carried out using in-house developed computer code based on Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS).



12/2019

Wet scraping Tool (WEST 540): It is used for collection of sliver sample from pressure tube for hydrogen analysis. It collects a very thin sliver sample from inside surface of pressure tube without affecting its integrity and residual service life. It is operated by fuelling machine ensuring minimum radiation exposure to the operating personnel.




Facilities
