NS SAVANNAH VENTILATION SYSTEM FILTER TESTING
The status of the N.S. Savannah ventilation system filter testing is reported. System specifications and criteria are described, along with filter-absorber train test methods. These include analytical techniques evaluation and system tests. System performance adequacy is reflected in the continued high iodine removal efficiency of the filter-absorber train, which has been established by initial shore tests followed by a series of shipboard tests. It is concluded that the filters have maintained high retention of both iodine and submicron particulates since installation, and that the shipboard test methods assure that ventilation system filter efficiency will meet or exceed the requirements of the technical specifications.
