Energy Steel provides custom fabrications that help solve customers’ issues and support obsolescence. See the below examples as a sample of our experience.
Overcoming Welding Challenges on Condenser Manifold
The geometry of a condenser manifold makes it challenging to manufacture. The branches (latrolets) are arranged in rows and columns and protrude at an angle of 45°. See how Energy Steel overcame these difficulties to help out a North American nuclear plant .
Utilizing Teaming Partner Relationships to Help Mitigate Obsolescence Issues in a Safety Related System
The on-site emergency power supply at a nuclear power plant is of the utmost importance to ensure uninterrupted power during a design basis event. Read how Energy Steel helped a North American nuclear power plant replace its existing pumps which were no longer supported by the Original Equipment Manufacturer.
Replacement Hot Leg for a Pressure Water Reactor
The hot leg serves a critical function with the primary cycle of a Pressurized Water Reactor. Light water is heated in the reactor and flows to the steam generator. A North American nuclear plant needed to replace its hot legs due to general age-related degradation. See how Energy Steel helped.
Design and Fabrication of Obsolete Let Down Coolers
The Chemical and Volume Control System (CVCS) serves multiple functions including purifying the reactor coolant. A small amount of water is continuously fed to the CVCS system, known as, let down. A North American nuclear plant found itself unable to source replacement coolers from the Original Manufacturer. See how Energy Steel helped solve this obsolescence issue.
