CAREM is an indirect cycle reactor with some distinctive features that greatly simplify the design and also contributes to a high safety level. Some of the high-level design characteristics are: Integrated primary cooling system (i.e. the primary circuit and the steam generators are located entirely within the reactor pressure vessel (RPV)).Cited by: core. This is a distinctive safety feature of the pressure tube reactor design. • The maximum reactivity rates achievable by driving all control devices together is about mklsecond, which is well within the design capability ofthe shutdown systems. Department ofNuclear Technology FaCUlty ofEngineering Chulalongkom University. Safety Considerations in Reactor Design. Reactors require much attention to safety details in the design process due to the hazards they impose. They are often the highest temperature point in the process, heat of reaction may be released, and residence times can be long leading to a large inventory of chemicals. safety of the public and plant personnel is of paramount importance. This recognition has led to the development of comprehensive Canadian reactor safety principles which govern the design and operation of CANDU units. The Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB), licenses the design, construction, and operation of these units on the basis of.

Optimization of decontamination strategy for CANDU-PHW reactors. F. B. Walton. are plant-specific aspects of the potential for such a release, but also broad similarities. Flaws discovered in in the CANDU reactor at Point Lepreau in New Brunswick (Canada) have raised concerns about safety, inspection and management issues associated with the Canadian CANDU reactor design, in Canada and internationally.
