Decontamination the Utility Viewpoint

  • W. P. Worden


Decontamination, or chemical cleaning, has always tended to be a controversial topic. In the early years of the industry, decontamination was taken by some vendors to be a fact of life and was considered by them in reactor design. The active literature in the 50’s and early 60’s reflects this. However, during the latter part of the 60’s and much of the 70’s, it became.a non-issue in this country largely because of the emphasis on rapid expansion in the industry. As operating experience grew and problems in plant operation, maintenance and testing developed, interest in decontamination was reborn.
