Preventing untimely downtime and delays
Vent filtration in nuclear plants minimize corrosive and deadly gases in critical core venting systems contained in a nuclear power plant’s emergency system.
Nuclear power plants vent systems are susceptible to costly downtime without well-thought-out emergency power supplies. Incorrect nuclear vent filtration can cause highly radioactive gases to be released from ruptured ductwork and, in turn, cause safety equipment to fail and impede efforts by plant workers responding to the accident. The result, if left unchecked, is reduced reliability of critical equipment, unscheduled downtime, and an increase in maintenance and repair costs.
Emergency vent filtration provides gas refinement when needed during a containment event. Pall Nuclear Vent Filtration minimize noxious gases in nuclear power plant vent systems to protect workers and the core itself. In the event of the postulated catastrophic event – effective filtration is critical to contain radioactive and deadly gas.
Ultipor® GF Plus filters medium uses a binder resin that coats the glass fibers, imparting a positive zeta potential in aqueous service. The resin also bonds the glass fibers to a polyester substrate, producing a rugged composite medium. Applications for such filters are numerous as most suspensions are negatively charged in aqueous solution, including not only particles but bacteria, viruses, and gases. Some Ultipor GF Plus filter grades efficiently remove sub-microscopic haze.
