This volume covers the practical application of remote technology to all types of nuclear plant, both experimental and commercial. It concentrates on the remote inspection, refurbishment and decommissioning of: reactor pressure vehicles; reactor internal components, primary circuits, boiler and steam generators, PIE. and fuel routes, reprocessing plant and radioactive waste storage. The emphasis is on equipment currently in use, and it also covers equipment under consideration and development. Consisting of 44 papers, these proceedings draw on the experience of nuclear engineers from around the world to form a substantial reference work on remote techniques for the inspection and refurbishment of nuclear plant.It is a light weight aluminum tube structure, approximately 6.0 m long by 90 mm in diameter, with a pivoting camera head (through 120Ad pitch) at one end. SOCA uses a ... The SOCA arm is deployed into the calandria vault by manually inserting it through any of the existing inspection ports. No guide tube or outboard drive system is necessary due to the low forces acting on the outboard end of the arm.
