SLUICING AND RECHARGING OF DEMINERALIZER RESIN ON BOARD AND ON SHORE

When the resin in the demineralizers in the Primary Loop Purification System becomes spent, it will be necessary to sluice the resin out of the demineralizers so that a batch of new resin can be added. The design of the demineralizers and the Primary Loop Purification System is such that the resin sluicing and resin recharging may be done either on board the ship or on the shore. The equipment required for both methods or procedures is nearly the same. The text describes the recommended procedures to be followed in performing the sluicing and recharging operations either on board the ship or on the shore; presents a recommended list of equipment required; and discusses the equipment and system designs.
