UK-based Porvair Filtration Group announced on 23 August that it had achieved status as an accredited supplier to the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), after qualifying and supplying its polymeric filter cartridges. Porvair was initially recognised as a supplier in 2013 to the Tarapur Atomic Power Station, and was again invited to bid for a similar project at the Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPP) and the Rajasthan Atomic Power Plant (RAPP) in 2017. Porvair’s Microfil™ polymeric filter cartridges were selected for the filtration of cooling water in the plant’s moderator line. The installation of the filter was critical to prevent the build-up of radioactive particles in the system and the development of hotspots.
