TECHNICALLY Ice Condensers have a brighter future at least near term than any new type of containment. I dare say the next nuke licensed in this country will be an Ice Condenser Plant. Just a hunch though.Mike
So are Sequoyah, McGuire and Catawba.Mike
So Watts Bar is an ice condenser plant, huh?
No idea! I guess someone figured it is though in truth Ice Condensers are a Pain in the butt!
I found the pain in my head, which I kept hitting on too-low hanging objects, and my back which I hurt trying st squeeze around in all the too-cramped spaces.The whole thing was a pain in the ice.
When you're the guy who has to evaluate the Condition reports for "We dropped this into lower ice and can't find it" or this ice basket is stuck so we're justifying weighing another, OR his ice basket is too light but the average weight of the others is higher than needed plus we believe it won't create an unanalyzed flow channel due to early melt.... well you'll know why I hate the dang thing.Plus lets face it, usually the chillers and pumps aren't in the greatest shape and are most likely to fail in the hottest week of summer.Cool concept though.
The sales pitch sales pitch concept was that after 10 yrs of operation you added water to replace the ice weight lost through sublimation. At 20 years you refilled!Concept Circle-Bar - Proven Wrong - as anyone familiar with the IC plants knows! But Circle-Bar had enough marketing skill to convince land based Utilities that they would work for low profile containments that would be acceptable to the public.
The Pebble Bed reactor made a big splash for a while and South Africa at one time intended to build one. Lately there has not been much noise about it, has it gone by the wayside?
Hello All!My first time posting. Need help from some experts - Working on a class presentation for a Rad Protection class. I have had the (dis)pleasure of working as an Ice Tech. @ CNS. Want to use it as a topic for my presentation...but, don't know a lot about the technical working. Who wants to volunteer to be a subject matter expert or point me in the direction of one said person?Much appreciation.
....Not once complained about how bad my ankle hurt in steel toes in the cold conditions).....
I appreciate the atta' boy.
1. You don't appreciate the opportunity to work inside a nuclear power plant.
