Let me clarify my earlier statement.
You can use a PAC on stainless, but the airborne Hex Chrome is about 30 micrograms per cubic meter.  This is 6 times the PEL.  Even in a respirator, you would have to track the hours of exposure, take air samples, use HEPA ventillation, have medical evaluations done .... yada, yada, yada.
Lately, TIG welding is the only weld process that doesn't allow for the oxydation of Chromium to Cr-VI.  Maybe dual-shield flux core as well, but I haven't looked into that yet.  SMAW (stick) welding is almost as bad as the plasma arc cutting according to the air samples I have seen.
Since they lowered the PEL from 50 to 5 ug/m3, the world of stainless work has gotten a lot harder to navigate.

And every facility has their on interpretation of these new guidelines, making it even harder for the world of stainless cutting and welding.

I thought all you needed was a blow dryer, half face mask, and a lot of acetylene ::)

This isn't really any response to a positive or negative posting about pilgrim, but the plant is a good place to work full time. There will most likely be a few house tech positions being posted here very soon. In the past, we've hired techs who were familiar freinds of present house tech's and  that has turned out well.  What the heck , send in a resume. We are a factor (or so, we like to think) in who gets the nod. Our staffing #'s are small and we could use some help. ::)

Hey, people.  This is my first post on the nukeworker forums.  I've had my 2nd class fireman's license for a few months and have zero success finding a job.  I'm interested in applying at Pilgrim but I cannot even find a WEBSITE for Pilgrim.  When I search "pilgrim nuclear" (or something similar) it just brings up a bunch of sites PROTESTING it!  All these power plants these days require that you apply through their website.  Anyone know the pilgrim site URL or how to apply?  Thanks!

Pilgrim is my favorite place to work.  Well, this one and Comanche Peak.  House techs and most other departments are friendly.  The plant is small and easy to learn your way around.  I'm not too crazy about it being an Entergy plant as I think Entergy does not treat its employees terribly well.  But overall, a great place to work and above all I like its location location location.

They've been better over the last five or six years, but last year had some problems during their outage.  They just put in Noble metals and expect a big boost from that for dose control.

A second class fireman's license has nothing to do with firefighting.  It is a license to operate a boiler.  Most fossil plants hire people with Stationary Engineer and Fireman Licenses but nukes do not unless they transfer over from a fossil unit.  Then, of course, their licenses become useless.

Thank you for the info Obi-wan, technical terminology and the english language can be confusing.  :)

Was told that the Pilgrim job listed was for strike contingency. They want people trained to come in and work in case there is one.

What's up?

Organizational Announcement from Pilgrom Communications Staff

On Monday, June 23rd,  John ‘Jack’ Priest will be joining the Pilgrim team to take on the role of Radiological Protection Manager.

Jack comes to us from Fermi 2, Detroit Edison, where he has held both the positions of Radiation Protection Manager and Radiation Protection Superintendent.  His experience includes assignments at First Energy, Davis Besse and Perry Nuclear Power Stations, Westinghouse Hanford, and United Nuclear Corp.  Jack hails from Boston and is a graduate of Lowell University with a Bachelor of Science in Radiological Health Physics.

There will be a transition period before Jack fully assumes the RPM responsibilities; I expect turnover to be complete by early July.

I also want to take the opportunity to thank Bill Mauro, and Tom McElhinney, who have helped lead the RP Department this year and have worked diligently to help all of us be successful and safe radiation workers.

Please welcome Jack as he begins his assignment as a new member of our Pilgrim team.

Good Restaurants:

Wood's Fish...at the north end of the waterfront, by the fishing charter boats.   Wood's is also a fish market, so you can check out the seafood before you order it.  I recommend the grilled swordfish, but the fried fish & scallops are good, too.  (Note:  downtown Plymouth & the waterfront are a zoo on the weekends...try Wood's for lunch or early supper on a weekday...they close at 7pm on weekdays during the winter.)

Bangna Gardens (Thai food)...take exit 9 (Kingston) and head west...you go maybe a couple of miles...it's on the right as soon as you cross the railroad tracks (across from the post office).  I've been eating Thai food for 20 years & Bangna Gardens is the most consistently good-to-great Thai cooking I've found.  We're trying to sample everything on the menu - about halfway through it.  Everything has been good, but I especially recommend the pineapple soup & tamarind duck.



....and, a bit further afield, Antonio's in New Bedford has great Portuguese food!  (Try the chicken Antonio.)  267 Coggeshall St...take the Coggeshall exit and hang a left...Antonio's is a couple of lights down on the right.

And if you make it to Fall River, try the Waterstreet Cafe for dinner & catch a show at Narrows Center for the Arts...both are located under the bridge by Battleship Cove & the Maritime Museum, so easy to find.

Boston:  I like to stop for dim sum at Hei La Moon...88 Beach St just outside Chinatown (across from the arch).  Very authentic (95% of the clientele & wait-staff won't be speaking English)...and a great value...easy to feed 4 people for $25.  And then wander over to Chinatown and have a bubble tea for dessert.



Honorable mention:  The Indian place & Thai place in downtown Plymouth are above average, but over-priced.  The gourmet Brazilian place in North Plymouth has an interesting buffet (plus churrasco meat on the weekends).

Pilgram. In this area you can buy cranberry pancakes. From experience I can tell you there are two foods that never should be mixed together. Those are cranberries and pancakes. What were these people thinking?

Add Carmela's (Italian...Kingston @ exit 9) to the list of great food!  I haven't had anything off their menu that wasn't tasty & well-prepared...

...and the British Beer Company in Cedarville (exit 2) actually has decent pizza (the New York style, not the pub style) to go with their wide beer selection.  And the salads are very nice, also.  The rest the food is generic, at best.

Never even heard of it...but it's almost lunch time, so guess we'll head down there now...I'll let you know what I think...



Oh...another place that's worth a stop, if you are up towards Quincy, is Firefly's.  Best barbecue joint I've found north of the Mason-Dixon line.  Take the Furnace Brook exit and head towards Quincy...it's on the northwest corner of Furnace Brook & Adams, behind the gas station.   We had dinner there last night and stuck with our standby meal of pulled pork with Memphis sauce, pan-seared vegetables, & sweet potato pecan pudding...but they have about 6 barbecue sauces, 50 hot sauces, 2 kinds of ribs, 2 kinds of brisket....  :)

$110K +/-10%...and that is just a best guess, because I haven't looked at a posting in about a year...
