The special valve analysis and testing circuit within our KOPRA Core Component Test Facility allows the testing of valves for nuclear applications under simulated operating conditions. Coolant temperature, pressure and volumetric flow are matched to reactor conditions. The test circuit allows valves with nominal diameters from DN 200 to DN 500 to be installed. 

Your Benefits

  • Tests of nuclear components under full-scale temperature and pressure conditions at high volumetric flow
  • Flexible test circuit for valve qualification, endurance and functional testing
  • Accredited test and inspection body, accepted by ILAC and open to external customers
