Pressure spray control valves to be used in overseas nuclear power plants
State Nuclear Power Engineering Corporation (SNPEC) of China has awarded Emerson Process Management a multi-million dollar purchase order for critical Fisher control valves to be used in Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized water reactors at both the Sanmen 2 and Haiyang 2 nuclear power plants.
SNPEC chose Emerson for this important application based on its nuclear valve experience and proven control valve designs. Emerson’s Fisher SS84 valves will be used in the AP1000 plants’ pressurizer spray system, which helps to maintain reactor coolant temperature. The SS84 valves are updated models designed to provide even easier maintenance and longer service life, according to Emerson.
