GEH’s OWC is an overall strategy created to minimize both intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) and radiation dose rates inside BWRs. It consists of a trio of innovative solutions created to work in concert to help ensure optimum reactor operation and efficiency.
The passive GEZIP system continuously injects a dilute ionic zinc water solution into reactor feedwater, which helps reduce the buildup of radiation inside the reactor.
OLNC is GEH’s solution to mitigate stress corrosion cracking in BWRs. Unlike the classic NobleChem™ (CNC) technology—also a GEH innovation—OLNC is conducted while the plant is operating—instead of during an outage—saving utilities time and money.
As the creators of HWC systems for its worldwide BWR fleet, GEH constantly works to improve its system’s IGSCC mitigation capabilities. HWC systems coordinate with the OLNC process and mitigation monitoring systems (MMS) to keep reactors operating at peak efficiency.
