Nuclear Power Inspection Systems

With over 30 years experience Phoenix has an extensive range of systems designed specifically for the nuclear sector which, when combined with our systems for the inspection of steam turbine and generators, means we can offer our customers a single source for equipment to inspect critical power plant components. Phoenix supplies NDT inspection systems to utilities and inspection providers for the pre and in-service inspection of primary circuit components, from the reactor pressure vessel through to secondary coolant loop piping and has experience in the following nuclear reactor types:
  • Pressurised Water Reactors (PWR, EPR)
  • Boiling Water Reactors (BWR)
  • Advanced Gas Cooled Reactors (AGR)
  • Fusion Reactors (ITER)

Plant Specific Applications: PWR & EPR

Phoenix produces ultrasonic inspection systems and probes for the inspection of the nozzles, pipework and specific components found on the Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) and the Evolutionary Pressurized Reactor (EPR). In particular Phoenix has supplied inspection manipulators for many of the critical welds on the PWR:

Pressurized Water Reactor & Evolutionary Pressurized Reactor

Reactor Pressure Vessel - inlet and outlet TENIS & Maxi SAGE
Primary circuit - Branch nozzles and Nozzle to shell welds SWIS
Pressuriser - spray nozzle SIRUS
Pressuriser - surge line nozzle APSIS
Steam generator hot and cold leg nozzles Maxi SAGE
Secondary circuit - Feedwater and main steam line welds SAGE & EPSOM
Steam generator - Channel head to tube sheet weld CHIM
Reactor head - Control rod drive mechanism (CDRM) housing CISU
Reactor coolant pump - Flange bolt threads and Flywheel keyway SIM
