Experience with vacuum distillation cleaning of a full-size steam generator

Abstract

In the 50 MW Sodium Component Test Facility at Hengelo tests are conducted on several types of full size prototype steam generators and an intermediate heat exchanger. The necessary post-test examination of these prototype components requires a complete removal of all sodium. Since in some cases the endurance test has to be continued after internal inspection, the cleaning-method should be such that no damage occurs to the component. After partial disassembly and internal inspection the component will be reassembled and must be acceptable for further use. The qualification tests of the Neratoom straight tube steam generator were concluded in June 1974. The evaporator module was decided to be partially disassembled in order to meet the requirement of a thorough examination before fabrication of the SNR-generators is started. In preparation for the most suitable cleaning procedure, several methods of sodium removal were considered.
