ECA GROUP provides a further visual inspection system for a nuclear reactor to the Institut Laue-Langevin

Monday, September 27 2021
ECA GROUP supplies to the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), an international research organization located in Grenoble (France), a Pan/Tilt system enabling the surveillance and monitoring of a research reactor.

The inspection of nuclear reactors is a challenging task. It requires specific systems able to withstand this type of hostile environment in order to prevent any malfunction that could hinder the integrity of the nuclear reactor.

It is even more difficult to inspect, during plant outage, due to the prevailing extremely high level of radiation, making the use of conventional CCD TV cameras impossible.

When inspecting a nuclear reactor, the multiple targets have to be inspected - using an omnidirectional camera allows an area to be checked quickly, while offering a high quality viewing over the zones to cover. This can be done using cameras mounted on a Pan&Tilt unit.

In line with our customer's requirements, ECA GROUP supplied the solution with its VS 340 N, a TV camera with a hard radiation tolerant tube sensor, and mounted on a radiation tolerant Pan&Tilt unit. This monochrome bi-unit TV camera is supplied with interchangeable heads for exhaustive inspection of the nuclear plant reactor.

The performance and reliability of ECA GROUP's VS 340 N system, confirmed by 2 previous purchases, led the Institut Laue-Langevin to once again renew its trust in ECA GROUP systems.

The order included an inspection system equiped with the VS 340 N TV camera mounted on a Pan&Tilt unit and relevant control units.



“We are proud to support our customers and continue this long and successful cooperation with such a prestigious Institute”, states Jean-Marie VACHETTE, Industrial Director, ECA GROUP Montpellier.
