Draining Na circuits and tanks expertise

Main description

Operating and dismantling a facility using sodium (or NaK) for the purposes of heat transfer creates many tanks which cannot be drained in full in the context of operations (a minimum level is maintained, settling area, limited risk of leakage). On this basis, it is necessary to install facilities able to drain these tanks as completely as possible, in the shortest possible period, while complying with the safety instructions applicable to sodium transfers. Framatome's dedicated facility can be installed for mobile tanks or specific lines can be created to completely drain fixed tanks.
