Main Condenser Coating
Case History #039 REV.04-97
LOCATION: South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant Unit #1
This nuclear power plant had problems with a general leaking of the condenser at the tube to tubesheet joint. Continued sever scaling of the tube internals was causing a steep decline in heat transfer.
The unit has 116,000 9 meter, 26mm ID 95/4/1 CuNiFe Tubes and 24 Carbon Steel tubesheets at 25 M2 each. All tubes were to be cleaned and all tubesheets coated.
This project was completed in April 1991 and has not required repair.
