A new publication from Rotork Hiller, which is available for download from their website, describes the benefits of the maintenance programme which the company performs for nuclear power industry valve actuators.
Rotork Hiller has been a long-time supplier of safety-related actuators for the nuclear power industry, with a focus on Main Steam Isolation Valve (MSIV) and Main Feedwater Isolation Valve (MFIV) applications. During this time Hiller’s maintenance programme has been developed, refined and successfully utilised by many commercial nuclear power plant operators.
Major benefits include the ability to perform the majority of actuator maintenance between outages and holding spare actuators in stock in order to eliminate unexpected complications and interruptions to outage schedules. All work is performed according to the applicable nuclear requirements and Hiller’s own regularly audited quality assurance programmes.
