In an investigation of the availability and possible reasons for replacement of specific air operated valves with hydraulic or electric value actuators, survey of approxi- mately fifteen (15) vendors was made to determine the availability of remote valve actuators operating under the conditions that prevail within the containment of the N.S. Savannah. The results are tabulated along with recommended system changes to minimize both valves and containment penetrations. A qualitative discussion is given on factors that influence actuator selection, as well as on the actuators themselves. (Author)
