Maintenance and management of emergency air purification system in HTTR

Aono, Tetsuya; Kondo, Masaaki; Sekita, Kenji; Emori, Koichi; Kuroha, Misao; Ouchi, Hiroshi

The High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) has an emergency air purification system(EAPS). The system keeps the service area negative pressure condition and exhausts the filtered air to prevent fission products release to environment in accident condition. The EAPS is one of the engineered safety features which is started automatically when radioactivity in the service area increase or might increase. The performance of the EAPS should satisfy the analytical condition for public dose evaluation in the severest accidents of the HTTR. The performance should be confirmed by function tests. The function tests are divided into many tests corresponding to each assumed phenomenon. The confirmation of the performance of the system was carried out effectively by the tests. Moreover, the stable operation of the system can be achieved by improvements of the method of leak tight tests of exhaust filter unit. The report describes the outline of EAPS system, maintenance works and improvement of the system.
