Safety of VVER-440 Reactors endeavours to promote an increase in the safety of VVER-440 nuclear reactors via the improvement of fission products limitation systems and the implementation of special non-destructive spectroscopic methods for materials testing. All theoretical and experimental studies performed the by author over the last 25 years have been undertaken with the aim of improving VVER-440 defence in depth, which is one of the most important principle for ensuring safety in nuclear power plants. Safety of VVER-440 Reactors is focused on the barrier system through which the safety principle is organised: a€c nuclear fuel matrix; a€c fuel cladding; a€c integrity of primary circuit; and a€c confinement system. All these barriers are described in detail and are compared to European standards. Industrial engineers will find Safety of VVER-440 Reactors a useful guide to the safe operation of nuclear power plants and it is an informative source of information for researchers in both industry and academia. Employees of related governmental and regulatory organisations may also benefit from reading this book.In order to prevent the undesirable refluxing of water in a small accident, there are two special DN 250 check valves on each floor (6) that allow for pressure equalisation in front of and behind the water seal. These check valves are fitted with a special blocking system which, depending on the pressure in the volume before the hydraulic seal, automatically locks or unlocks the valve. The blocking system is set to a value of 165 I‡ 5 kPa of absolute pressure. Above this value the valve isanbsp;...
