Actually I work at a B&W PWR. I am not familiar with Westinghouse Plants. I have a buddy who used to be a core designer for Westinghouse and I can ask him how they can be shut down. I know in my plants last outage that the soft shutdown did give good results for ALARA.ISFSI, you now got me thinking about the insertion time STs. I need to look at my stuff and see what the details are for my plant. I do know that individual rods can be withdrawn during a shutdown for testing. I have seen some of this testing and it takes a long time. I am not sure however about them being tested for drop times during this testing.
Sorry...I'm not certain how to overcome that Security INPO thing. Perhaps the host site where you're at (or going) can offer some assistance through their membership in INPO. I would suggest talking to someone in the Corrective Actions and Assesments arena.hth- ...thankyou...i knew this but, given your sincere effort to help on this topic, i didn't want you to think i hadn't made efforts to answer my own questions through research...
... ...can these isotopes be descriminated out by the new pcm's and portal monitors... ...
Since these are reactor produced I don't' think that you want to discriminate them out. just because the contamination is from a gasous source it is still contamination.
...are there any realistic ways to improve on the current practice of long waits at the rca egress control point followed by body counts and showers... ...by the way, what was it like...taking both parts of the chp exam on the same day...
After 9 hours of test my head hurt but luckily there was a bar withing walking distance of motel I still think taking both parts is the best way to go . All the hours of study are not geared to a particular style of test. Both sections test same body of knowledge-- so might as well take a chance. I'll know more when I get results in Nov....Not sure there is a good answer to preventing noble gas contamination. Anti stat sprays (for clothing) helps some. But at end of day what ever you get on/in you is going to have to decay away. Lucky that most of these gases are relatively short lived
... ...do disposable ( orex, disolvetech, etc. ) scrubs, in context of the noble gas issue, make a significant difference...
