(8) Low Alloy Carbon Steel Steam Distribution System
(9) Carbon Steel Feedwater Pump
(10) Complete Electrical Distribution System
(11) Complete Instrumentation System
(12) Three Waste Retention Storage Tanks.
The primary system steam piping will be fabricated
from low alloy carbon steel after connecting to stainless steel flanged
joints in the steam lines downstream from the shut-down coolers; The
turbine-simulator valve manifold and relief system are to be locatednear
the base of the discharge stack, protected by a sheet metal building.
The carbon steel portion of the piping system is to be
replaced with Type 304 stainless steel for Step III.
For Step II operation (dual cycle) the forced-circu-
lation system water-cooled heat exchangers with piping and control valves
For Step III operation (DO and indirect cycle) the
following items will be added:
(1) Water-Cooled Steam Condensers
(2) De-aerating Hotwell
(3) Recombination System
(4) Reactor Water Cleanup System
(5) Stainless Steel Steam Distributing System
(6) Stainless Steel Feedwater Pump.
The items to be specified under mechanical requre-
(1) All components of the primary system, with ex-
ceptions as noted.
(2) All auxiliary systems.
(3) All components necessary for providing building
services, heating, ventilating and air conditioning.
(4) Handling equipment.
Of these components the Laboratory will design and
supply the reactor vessel.
Information relative to size, weight, the nature of the
connections for the reactor vessel will be supplied by the Laboratory.
The remaining components will be designed by the
Architect-Engineer in acco-rdance with requirements set forth by the
Laboratory. Extremely close cooperation will be necessary between the
Architect-Engineer and the Laboratory, particularly with regard to this
Here’s what’s next.
