FCCI was recently awarded a complex valve contract which required extensive engineering and technical planning. FCCI accepted the undertaking which required valves meet NQA-1, including Underwriters Laboratories certification. FCCI's experience and technical knowhow provided the platform for project execution.
The project spanned more than 2 years from design through fabrication and testing. FCCI engaged the most qualified sub tier support in North America in order to complete scope requirements. The process included manufacturer quality and laboratory audits as defined under EPRI guidelines. Qualified manufacturers and laboratories were utilized resulting in enhanced fabrication techniques, document control and testing.
Material control and document verification was accomplished through FCCI's Internal Configuration Management Process. FCCI developed the test plan for critical component testing and acceptance criteria. All material properties were verified by FCCI for compliance with applicable codes and standards.
Once material testing was completed, FCCI provided Underwriters Laboratories with test valves under UL 125, UL 132 and managed the certification process. Six designs were submitted and subsequently certified for anhydrous ammonia service at the Waste Treatment Plant.
The team of FCCI, Frontier Valve and Apollo Valves recognized the complexities, remained focused and arrived at project realization on schedule. FCCI's success is a direct result of our unyielding commitment to quality within the nuclear industry. FCCI's continuous support for RPP-WTP's mission remains resolute.
