Valve and equipment location

(1/3) > >>

I know most of you have wandered around (or climbed around) inside the biowall, drywell, D-Ring, etc.  looking for some damn valve that the house tech told you was in Alpha Loop only to find it in Charlie Loop 40 mrem later.

Okay nukes, what's out there to assist us in finding valves, transmitters, etc?  What's the best you've seen and the worst?

The Valve Locator books at St. Lucie and Turkey Point work pretty well. While they are not perfect, they are pretty clsoe. They come from a database that were put together by the ALARA groups with assistance from Maintenance, Ops and others. They save a bunch of time and dose.

Shearon Harris was by far the best I have seen.  They had big maps at every ingress point to a major area with valves numbered on each map.  Every valve had a tag with large numbers identifying it.  You could also go to the HP window and get a map for every area with the valve numbers on it.  They also had large maps around the HP window with valve numbers on them.  The rest do not compare, they are scum in my opinion compared to the Shearon Harris way.

Usually valve lineups had good locations of the valves.  Back that up with the maps at RP, and generally you were in business..

   I found it so well organized that it serves as my library's sole systems reference book.
