We are your experienced internal aging management partner.
When you need an experienced partner to help you achieve your long-term operation goals, look to Westinghouse. We’ve been planning for and meeting the challenges of the nuclear industry for nearly 50 years. We are a trusted reactor internals aging management partner.
Since 1985, we have replaced more than 2,900 baffle bolts at 23 plants worldwide, and have provided contingency planning for an additional 14 plants. We developed the Acceptable Bolting Pattern Analysis (ABPA) more than 20 years ago to provide a tool for assessing the acceptability of baffle-former bolt (BFB) inspection results. Now we have developed a probabilistic prediction methodology that uses input from the ABPA and can predict the stress level and likelihood of failure for each BFB in a reactor internals baffle-former assembly. These bolt-by-bolt predictions provide the detailed, accurate information required for long-term planning, including inspection timing and frequency, so nuclear plant operators can make better-informed decisions for future outages. The result: decreased risk and lower costs support development of a long-term aging management strategy for BFBs.
Additionally, we now have the capability to support three baffle bolt replacement campaigns in parallel. We developed and fabricated manual installation tooling for installing simplified baffle-former bolts allowing easier setup and small scale replacement at a lower cost. Our technology also includes improved replacement bolts that provide advanced materials and features for resistance to future degradation.
现在我们开发了一种预测方法，其使用来自ABPA的确定性输入和概率框架内的其他分析来预测反应器内部挡板 - 以前组件中的每个BFB的压力水平和可能性。对于目前被配置为下流电抗器内部的植物，转换为上流可以减少所需的完整螺栓数量和挡板喷射燃料损坏的易感性。188金宝搏是什么东西?如果从下流电抗器内部转换为upflow，则作为老化管理的一部分，我们有经验和专业知识来成功和有效地实施此修改。事实上，我们是唯一一家在过去的25年中完成了这种转变的公司。
Our commitment to the future of safe, efficient and economical long-term operations is as strong today as the dedication of the forward-thinking Westinghouse pioneers who brought us here. With each innovation, we benefit from their experience. And we offer that depth of experience and legacy to our partners. The future looks brightest for those who can apply what they’ve learned in the past to the challenges of the future.
