LOCA Test Facility (In-house)
RSCC is capable of nuclear accident simulation testing operating a dedicated LOCA Chamber, pertaining to 10CFR Appendix B,ANSI 45.2, NQA-1, and 10CFR21. This capability represents a unique commitment to the nuclear industry because inside containment environments in new advanced reactors are still being defined with respect to specific cable locations and applications.
RSCC has a full scale flame test chamber that meets all of the latest nuclear requirements and can run a variety of tests including the stringent IEEE-1202 test.
