World Class Filtration Solutions
Porvair Filtration Group is heavily involved in the field of developing containment venting solutions for water cooled reactors.
Regulators and governments worldwide are discussing the mandatory installation of precautionary equipment to mitigate the effects of severe accidents in water cooled reactors, to protect the reactor containment from the consequences of the increasing pressures due to vapour generation and other volatiles.
Using high-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) composed of 316L stainless steel Sinterflo® F sintered metal fibre elements, Porvair Filtration Group engineer tailored solutions for passive filtered containment venting systems (FCVS), capable of operating in the event of a total loss of power.
Porvair Filtration Group has observed that no two filtered containment venting applications seem to be the same, each having its own unique set of requirements and therefore each solution takes into account a multitude of variable factors from the arduous environment within the reactor containment, including: gas composition, flow, pressure, temperature, high level particulate loading and decay heat.
Porvair's FCVSs manage the release of over-pressure within the reactor containment whilst capturing solids and removing liquid aerosols.
