BWXT’s expertise in heat transfer systems has enabled us to provide quality components to the nuclear industry and, in particular, has allowed us to design and manufacture some of the most reliable and longest-serving steam generators, pressurizers and heat exchangers in the nuclear market.
In a nuclear plant arrangement, heat exchangers transfer heat from the primary side (reactor) to the secondary side steam generator. The heat exchangers redistribute condensate that is created via exhaust steam from the turbines.
Our experience includes the design and manufacturing of more than 305 OEM and replacement nuclear steam generators and more than 100 other heat exchangers for plants around the world.
Through this experience, we’ve been able to grow our competencies across the entire range of heat transfer equipment, and our knowledge and experience in the design and manufacturing of heat exchangers for the nuclear market is second-to-none.
Our in-depth knowledge and experience comes from our involvement in every aspect of design, manufacturing, installation, commissioning and service of heat exchangers.
Our engineers have the tools and experience to design heat exchangers to meet the operating and reliability requirements that today’s nuclear operators demand. All BWXT supplied steam generators and heat exchangers have met or exceeded the specified thermal performance requirements.
