Davis Besse 2002

(1/2) > >>

I'm looking for anyone who was at the infamous 2002 refueling outage at Davis Besse. That is the one where the hole in the reactor head was discovered. I was there and I remember a man that had inhaled a particle after being sent into the generator bowl with only a face shield and a paper suit. Does anyone else remember this incident?

Are you learned in radiation protection? Huge difference between "inhalation" and ingestion. Assuming the S/G worker was in compliance with the RWP, then "only a face shield and paper suit" had been evaluated and determined proper dress for the work. Chance of a DRP winding up in the S/G channel head due to a leak on the closure head is unlikely although possible. The millions of gallons of RCS that pass thru the area is more likely the cause. This site is not a good place to go on a fishing expedition as many inhabitants actually know what they are talking about.

Many words were spoken. Nothing was said.

i do remember them not using a buffer zone or double stepoff pads for work at the manways, we would set them up on nightshift and dayshift management would have them taken down....the incident i dont remember but the whole place was a mess
