While many locations that are inspected are at low risk of finding degradation, the consequences of finding degradation is high due to unplanned evaluations and potential repairs to bring a station back online.
This webinar will briefly discuss the locations and materials of concern and outline steps that can be taken to reduce the impact on the station during the outage if unfavorable results are obtained.
Topics discussed will include pre-outage readiness, emergent flaw evaluations and potential repair methods. SI has worked on many high impact locations this spring and will share some of our lessons learned.
David Segletes has 24 years of experience in supplier qualifications, manufacturing support, failure investigations, and development of rotor weld repair technology at an original equipment manufacturer. Since joining Structural Integrity Associates he has been dedicated to supporting client needs based on his expertise in metallurgy and fabrication. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and active in pressure vessel code committee work with the Section XI (Nuclear In-service Inspection) Working Group on Welding & Special Repair Processes. He has supported clients directly onsite for a variety of projects across several of the industries served by Structural Integrity Associates.
Chris Lohse has been with Structural Integrity for over 10 years. While at SI, Mr. Lohse has helped plants address their material degradation issues from main loop RCS Alloy 600 concerns to reactor vessel internals. He has specialized in the mitigation and repair of Alloy 600 components for both BWRs and PWRs and has designed and implemented dozens of welded repairs at operating units. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and active in pressure vessel code committee work with the Section XI (Nuclear In-service Inspection) Task Group on High Strength Nickel Alloy Issues.
