General requirements and procedures for pre-critical clean-up of the systems composing the N.S. Savannah nuclear power plant are provided to insure adequate cleanliness and absence of foreign material. Detailed step procedures for the clean-up of each system are not given, only general procedures to be followed. Reference documents are cited along with system designation and general instructions. Flushing procedures are presented for the bulk of the report on each system: primary, secondary, primary pressurizing, relief, primary loop purification, sampling, hydrogen addition, equipment drain and wast collection, buffer seal, gaseous waste disposal, intermediate cooling, emergency cooling (primary piping and salt water piping), and containment cooling. The final clean-up procedure describes the cleaning procedure to be used following the completion of Phase II testing prior to loading the reactor core.
