Description of application

  • Protective Shrouds for High Pressure Valves

Implications of problem

  • As a valued supplier, our customer requested Nufox visit at very short notice to discuss the potential supply of protective shrouds required for High Pressure reactor valves during installation on to nuclear submarines.
  • Each valve cost in the region of £35,000 and any slight damage can result in the valve having to be scrapped.

Nufox solution

  • As the valves are located within close proximity to the nuclear reactor, Nufox developed a specific elastomer compound with zero halogens, bromine and chlorine, which otherwise would be seen as contaminants.
  • 600+ shrouds have been supplied to date and has resulted in a 0% scrap rate, which has offered a significant saving over previous years.
