Vacuum-Canister Sipping Leaking Fuel Assembly Detection

Framatome’s vacuum-canister sipping delivers proven performance and reliability for detecting leaking fuel in PWRs or BWRs. This dependable process detects leaks during routine fuel assembly off-loading operations, or when preparing for dry cask storage. Vacuum sipping identifies leaking assemblies by isolating each one in a sipping canister. Operators control the sampling process from freestanding electrical control consoles. A single multi-conductor cable connects these consoles to the valve stations. Plus, they are designed and set up to operate from a non-contaminated area.
