Description

Accurate defect detection and sizing of flaws is of importance to the nuclear utility industry and the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, with decisions of economic and environmental consequence dependent on these results. Success to date has been achieved in the inspection of steam generators where eddy current techniques have been developing for several years. No NRC regulations currently require fan cooler unit (FCU) inspections; therefore, the corresponding in-service inspection (ISI) procedures are not nearly as mature.
