Cormet’s SSRT autoclaves and recirculation loops.

Framatome’s laboratory in Erlangen has several Cormet’s SSRT autoclaves and recirculation loops. Framatome’s scientists study the SCC phenomena in high-temperature high-pressure water simulating the PWR and BWR operating environments.

Framatome, a French multinational company that specializes in nuclear energy, has its own laboratory located in Erlangen, Germany, where it conducts various research activities to ensure the safety and reliability of their products. One of the key pieces of equipment in the laboratory is Cormet's SSRT autoclaves and recirculation loops, which are used to simulate the high-temperature and high-pressure environment of a pressurized water reactor (PWR) and boiling water reactor (BWR). The autoclaves and recirculation loops play a crucial role in studying stress corrosion cracking (SCC) phenomena, which is a common issue in nuclear power plants.

Framatome's team of experienced scientists utilize the autoclaves and recirculation loops to conduct extensive experiments in high-temperature high-pressure water to simulate the PWR and BWR operating environment. The team's research focuses on the effects of SCC on different materials used in nuclear power plants, and the results of their research are used to develop safer and more reliable products. The scientists also work on developing new technologies to improve the efficiency and safety of nuclear power plants. Overall, Framatome's laboratory in Erlangen is a key hub for research and development in the field of nuclear energy, and its contribution to the industry is highly valued.
