Fuel storage and Reactor Pools
ECA GROUP offers a large range of high radiation TV cameras for the intervention inside fuel storage and reactor pools regardless the space and/or radiation level constraints.
Range of solutions
Structural integrity control
Among others applications, the cameras are operated inside the fuel storage and reactor pool to the detection of structural defaults and the presence of foreign objects, especially for the lower plate of the reactor core. Also, combined with the CDS40, it is now possible to generate colour video from the tube technology TV cameras which is very helpful for the control of welds or corrosion presence.
Survey of fuel Rods alignment and mapping
The VS340N TV camera can be equipped with a radial head in only 40 mm diameter housing. This assets make it the perfect TV camera for the survey of fuel rods alignment into pool. During this survey, The VS340N TV camera is also able to read the P/N of the rods for mapping purposes.
Assistance to operators
These high radiation tolerant TV cameras also offer an effective assistance during the loading/unloading operations of nuclear fuels into the pool.
The HYTECTM lightings are 30 m watertight and can be equipped with protective glass in quartz material for the protection against thermal shocks. They supply a powerful lighting in air or in water for improving the video quality of inspections.
