Abstract

During the experimental demonstration performed in May 1984, at the Kahl reactor, the VAK III ultrasonic seals developed at JRC Ispra for the sealing of LWR fuel assemblies were found to work properly and to be easily reidentifiable. Nevertheless other improvements were indicated and requested concerning the handiness of the operating tools and a possible simplification of the correlation technique used while performing a seal identification, on the spot. The work done, along with the progress obtained during the next demonstration campaign, in November 1984, are presented, with a particular emphasis on the improving of the data processing and on the new adaptability of the identification instrument to various checking situations in dry or wet conditions, according to the requirements of the potential users or inspectors.
