Ultrasonic Fuel Cleaning and Testing (UT)

We offer Ultrasonic Fuel Cleaning (UFC) services to preclude axial offset conditions that affect fuel performance and to effectively remove corrosion products (crud), reducing source term and personnel exposure. UFC also reduces dose rates on primary components contaminated by the migration of activation products from core surfaces. UFC was developed to manage or eliminate in-core flux depression by removing deposits from fuel assemblies during refueling outages. Framatome currently deploys one BWR UFC system, one PWR UFC system and one new “next generation” High Efficiency UFC (HE-UFC) system based on the utility’s plant type and specific installation needs.
