DBA (LOCA) Testing

  • Kinectrics’ steam plant can meet the most stringent temperature and pressure profiles such as Westinghouse AP1000 Zone 1 and Zone 5/10.
  • Test chambers are well suited for testing cables, electrical penetrations, valves, instrumentation, and all types of electrical and mechanical equipment.
  • The expanded test facilities permit close control of test conditions to meet client requirements, while minimizing effects of over-testing during simulations.
  • Kinectrics DBA tests meet relevant IEEE and CSA standards in accordance with nuclear QA programs (10 CFR 50 Appendix B, CSA Z299, ISO 9001).
  • Tests are conducted by an expert team consisting of professional engineers and technical specialists.
  • Facilities on site to support DBA testing include a model shop for fixture fabrication, and analytical chemistry lab for production and testing of DBA chemical spray (under ISO 17025 QA program).
  • Kinectrics provides technical experts in house to support DBA test programs including metallurgical, elastomer, and corrosion engineers
