Valcor Releases New White Paper on Life Extension in Nuclear Valves

Share Article

The Nuclear Power industry is extending the operating lifespan of its reactors from 40-60 years to 60-80 years. This life extension requires regulatory approval and verification that safety-related components can meet their new service (qualified) life objectives. This paper discusses what is involved in this process.

Valcor Engineering Corporation, a world-class designer and manufacturer of custom precision fluid and motion controls for nuclear, space, aircraft, and scientific/industrial industries, has just released a new white paper entitled “Life Extension on Nuclear Solenoid Operating Valves.”

The Nuclear Power industry is extending the operating lifespan of its reactors from 40-60 years to 60-80 years. This life extension requires regulatory approval and verification that safety-related components can meet their new service (qualified) life objectives. This paper discusses what is involved in this process.

“A structured approach in analyzing the qualified life of age sensitive components supports the nuclear promise of cost reduction and continued operation of nuclear power plants beyond their initial design life,” stated Steven Gatcomb, Nuclear Sales & Marketing Director.
