Nuclear plants that utilize Diakont’s BWR torus inspection service significantly reduce inspection costs, duration, and personnel dose exposure, all while increasing nuclear safety.
The current outdated method used to examine the torus lining (below the water level) requires divers to perform a manual visual inspection. This method is costly, time-consuming, inherently unsafe, and challenges ALARA goals.
Diakont’s inspection tooling transitions seamlessly between the remotely operated vehicle’s (ROV) “flying” mode and cleaning “crawler” mode. It records a digital log for tending purposes and comparisons for future refueling outages. The deliverables from each inspection include real-time disposition of findings, a comprehensive inspection report, and video recordings.
