Fragmentation Test Rig

Fragmentation of insulation materials under Loss-of-coolant Accident (LOCA) conditions:

  • saturated steam up to 7 MPa (BWR-LOCA)
  • saturated or subcooled water up to 12 MPa (PWR-LOCA)

The test facility consits of a stainless steel container with a volume of 5.8 m³ (for installation of insulation material specimens (targets))

  • Connection to the Pressurizer Test Facility
  • Glass window for process observation with a high speed camera
