Emerson service center re-approved for nuclear industry
The NUPIC (Nuclear Procurement Issues Committee) Audit Report, issued on December 6, 2007, followed a comprehensive audit of the facility by a team of nuclear industry experts. This approval provides nuclear plant procurement personnel the assurance that Emerson's Columbia Service Center adheres to quality programs in compliance with 10CFR50 Appendix B and Part 21 of the US Regulatory Commission (NRC) 18 Point Quality Assurance Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants and Fuel Reprocessing Plants.
The FlowScanner 6000 valve diagnostic system provides the most accurate and safest way to diagnose control valves. This exceptional diagnostic tool acquires valve data through very accurate travel sensors, which is analyzed and viewed on laptop or tablet PC for plant personnel to use in maintaining optimum control valve performance.
According to Denny Cahill, vice president and general manager of Emerson's Instrument & Valve Services business, "The Columbia Service Center is uniquely staffed with trained personnel capable of providing safety-related valves and parts meeting nuclear power industry requirements on short notice. This is the only instrument & valve services center in North America dedicated to meeting short-lead-time delivery needs of non-code safety-related valves, parts, and services to this industry."
The Columbia Service Center also holds "R" Stamp certification from the National Board of Pressure Vessel Inspectors, allowing personnel from Columbia to make field repairs and alterations on Contek "S" Stamp desuperheaters at any customer location in the US. In addition, the Service Center holds "NR" Stamp certification, which qualifies site personnel to complete materials repairs to ASME Section III Code Pressure Boundary Parts.
The Columbia Service Center also holds an ASME NPT Certificate which enables this location to provide short lead time ASME code replacement parts.
Emerson is the largest North American supplier of instrument & valve services, related repairs, parts, and other services, with 54 locations across the US, Canada, and Mexico. Expert personnel are dedicated to help customers avoid unplanned costs and unscheduled maintenance through comprehensive startup, diagnostic, repair, and maintenance services.
