SIRUS

SIRUS is our latest scanner for the PWR fleet and is used to inspect the pressuriser spray nozzle inner radius weld. SIRUS provides 360° circumferential and 300mm radial movement to meet the requirements of the inspection.

SIRUS is our latest scanner for the PWR fleet and is used to inspect the pressuriser spray nozzle inner radius weld. Working with Comex Nucleaire of France, Phoenix developed this two-axis manipulator to scan different configurations of ultrasonic probes on the surface of the pressuriser dome to inspect the inner radius of the nozzle. The SIRUS scanner, remotely operated from the ALARA area, positions the transducers on the dome external surface and provides 360° circumferential and 300mm radial movement. In addition, the transducers’ skew can be set to different angles and their relative separation adjusted to meet the requirements of the inspection.
