Corrosion in boilers and turbines at Trawfynydd Nuclear Station led to a detailed study of design, operation and the effects of small contaminants on power station operation. There was evidence of a concentration phenomenon, which, with appropriate chemical conditions, can promote boiler corrosion. Corrosion in the turbines appeared to be associated with the presence of acetate ion in the condensate; a contaminant which entered the steam circuit through the water treatment plant. (Mr. D.C.F. Lunn, Chief Technical Adviser (Creep Project), UNIDO)
