NUCLEAR POWERPLANT FUEL ASSEMBLY GRID INSPECTION EQUIPMENT
Remote visual inspection is carried out using a radiation-resistant probe lodged in a guide tube having mechanical characteristics identical to a fuel rod.
Such radiation-resistant probe is made up of:
• A distal segment comprising a radiation-resistant, quartz-technology fiberscopic probe. This long length probe can have either axial or lateral viewing and implements distal LED lighting
• A waterproof PINCAM 900 endoscopic camera having an opto-electrical interface allowing connection to fiberscopic probe proximal end
• A 30 m length umbilical cable
• An operating unit such as the TITAN
