Remote-Controlled In-Pipe Manipulators

Due to long service life, piping in nuclear power plants must be inspected and repaired regularly to prevent and mitigate defects or indications. Framatome has developed remote controlled in-pipe manipulators which allow the removal of indications from the ID surface via a qualified three-step grinding process at the weld root. In most cases, the in-pipe manipulator can be inserted into the pipe system via existing openings such as valves or component hand/man holes, minimizing the need to cut pipes.
