Passive Heat Removal: Containment Cooling Condenser

Main description

The Containment Cooling Condenser allows passive heat removal from the containment to a water pool outside the containment. Steam inside the containment atmosphere condenses at the surface of the heat exchanger and heat is transferred to the outside pool by single- or two-phase natural circulation. With this component, the containment pressure is kept below the design pressure and maintains stable at low pressure even in the long-term, as long as the water reservoir outside containment is available.
