Filters for Nuclear Applications Nuclear Products

Filters are used to remove fine suspended particles from fluid streams. Thermon Heating Systems supplies liquid filters for nuclear plant applications such as: reactor coolant, coolant water make-up, condensate treatment, steam generator blow down, spent fuel pool water clean-up, radwaste clean-up, laundry rinse clean-up, pump seal injection and filters for control rod drive mechanisms and other applications. Filters in radioactive environments are designed for remote operation. Covers are equipped with gear box operators. Thermon Heating Systems uses captive bolts that remain on the cover and do not fall when the cover is removed. The cover seal gasket is incorporated into the filter cartridge or filter basket, eliminating the need for a separate cover gasket. Filters from Thermon Heating Systems are designed with advanced filter media that provide optimum filtration efficiency, dirt holding capacity and pressure drop. Filters are qualified for radioactive environments and are available with micron ratings from as low as 0.1 micron up to 100 micron.
