Special purpose machinery & tooling
Vital calibration and tooling capability
Working closely with clients, Rolls-Royce has developed a system that remotely calibrates, tests, stores and exchanges reactor fuel channel inspection and maintenance tooling.
Limited access to the reactor core and complex restrictions to mounting areas demanded a very compact and modular system. Our solution to this problem includes a way to flood and drain a module with D20. It also has a pneumatic system to operate various actuation cylinders remotely. Its design focuses on the need for harsh-environment operations with limited personnel accessibility. Rolls-Royce undertook complete engineering analysis and registration for the piping system and modules.
Rolls-Royce capabilities include:
- Complete mechanical and electrical system assembly
- Software development
- Provision of operation and maintenance manuals and installation and operator training
