The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has amended its regulations to provide an alternative approach for treatment of structures, systems, and components (SSCs) for nuclear power reactors using a risk-informed method of categorizing SSCs according to their safety significance. Risk-Informed Safety Class (RISC)–3 structures, systems and components (SSCs) means safety-related SSCs that perform low safety significant functions.
In order to be readily available to support the industry, Schulz Electric has developed a methodology and drafted procedures/instructions for the processing of RISC-3 equipment.
Schulz Electric Developed Alternative Treatment Process for RISC-3 Motors that were previously 10CFR50.49
Schulz Electric EQ Reports Can Be Utilized as Plant Accident Function Assessment (AFA)
Schulz Electric has Significant Knowledge and Experience in Motor Insulation Systems and Materials
Maintains Design Basis of Original EQ Insulation Systems Down to the Raw Material Stage
Dedicates Insulation System (and Other Subcomponents) Materials at the Raw Material Stage
Maintains Over 25 Years of Materials Test Data
Schulz Electric Utilizes this Body of Data, Experience, Knowledge, Facts and Observations as Basis for EQ Alternative Treatments
Procure Same Insulation System Materials from Same Suppliers as EQ Insulation System
Procure to Same Commercial/Industrial Technical Requirements
Utilize Same Schulz Personnel and Process to Procure Materials
No Special Testing or Inspections for Legacy SR or EQ Processes
Wind/Rewind Motor Utilizing Same Technical and Manufacturing Process
Eliminate QA Oversight During Manufacturing Process
Multiple Electrical and Mechanical Tests Performed During Motor Winding Process
Further Ensures Materials are Suitable for End-use Application
Process Also Maintains Thermal Endurance Rating of Class F
Schulz Process Consistent with EPRI TR-1009748
Will Provide Reasonable Confidence Insulation System Will Perform Intended Design Function During DBE Throughout 40-Year Service Life
Provide Significant Cost Reduction Over Same Motor Manufactured/Rewound to 10CFR50.49
