Surface protection and treatment
During outages, the secondary system is subject to iron corrosion. Film Forming Amines (FFA) is a tested and proven solution of Framatome to protect metal surface. With a protective layer, it limits corrosion, even in the event of extended outages, with no secondary lay-up work required during the outage itself. FFA also improve the performance of the secondary system during the next cycle as it increases steam generator pressure, and also reduces future maintenance work for steam generators.
