Title: Guide for the examination of service water system piping

Abstract

Examination of service water systems has become increasingly important, especially in nuclear power plants with the NRC issuance of GL89-13 and Temporary Instructions 2515/118. To be effective, the examination program should have objectives that define sample size and locations, examination methods assessment criteria, and proposed remedial actions. Three types of examination methods are described. Radiography, ultrasonics, and visual examination are commonly used techniques with certain advantages and limitations. Each technique is discussed in detail. Field tested examples of each technique are also provided. Three appendices give procedures used for the application of each of these techniques. These example procedures should be useful to those responsible for developing examination criteria for service water systems.
