The 6th CNS International Steam Generator Conference, which is sponsored and organized by the Canadian Nuclear Society, Design & Materials Division, will follow in the tradition of the five predecessor Toronto Conferences of 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2006.
This conference provides a wide ranging forum on nuclear steam generator technology from degradation root-cause assessment to life-cycle management to inspection and maintenance as well as functional and structural performance characteristics; it does not focus on equipment architecture or design. The 6th conference has again adopted the theme:
Management of Real-Life Equipment Conditions and Solutions for the Future
This theme is particularly appropriate given the current renewed focus on the long-term reliability of Alloy 800 steam generator tubing material; and on the life-cycle-management measures necessary to enhance that reliability given the lessons-learned from recent and ongoing operating experience.
The conference objective is to explore the current condition of existing steam generation equipment, with emphasis on solutions for improving performance and service-life for existing equipment and the application of this knowledge to the next generation of replacement and new-build steam generators. Heat exchangers, condensers and balance-of-plant technology for nuclear power generation will also be discussed.
The conference will be of interest to those involved in the operation, maintenance, inspection, repair, replacement, life assessment, manufacture, design or research of steam generators and associated systems; also of heat exchangers, condensers and balance-of-plant equipment in nuclear power generation applications.
The Technical Program Committee welcomes the contribution of 300 to 400-word abstracts of papers for oral or poster presentation that discuss nuclear steam generators, heat exchangers, and condensers in the following general subject areas:
Abstracts are to be 300 to 400 words, formatted in Microsoft Word using 11 pt Helvetica font. Click on the link above for a sample abstract. Abstracts must include the following information:
