The study's purpose is the evaluation of the adequacy of the design criteria, equipment, and method of control for reactor primary loop water purification. Excluded in the scope of this study is the design of the secondary system purification equipment, the demineralizer resin handling system, and the components selected for instrumentation and control. The report concludes that the purification system design is in accordance with good practice and may be expected to operate reliably. The following design changes are, however, recommended: 1) unitization of the demineralizer-filter system; 2) re-routing of the demineralizer bypass line; 3) addition downstream of filters of additional sampling connection; 4) installation upstream of the present demineralizers of high-flow rate cation units; 5) replacement of all inaccessible diaphram valves with electric valve operators; and 6) shielding of the effluent filters with a thick lead jacket.
