May 02, 2000 In addition to the core shroud, the majority of the internal components made of 304 SS were replaced. These included 1 core shroud, 2 top guide, 3 core plate, 4 core spray spargers, 5 feed water spargers, 6 jet pumps, 7 DPLC pipe, 8 ICM guide tubes 9 internal pipes and 10 nozzle safe end which is connected to these components, as shown in Fig. 1.
Two independent core spray loops core spray and feed water spray are installed in the vessel above the upper core grid top guide and within the core shroud. The loops are connected to the Core Spray System which is used for core cooling under loss of coolant accident conditions.
