Nuclear

API is a leading edge provider of metrology solutions, delivering unmatched precision measurement equipment, services, and scanning to the nuclear energy industry. API provides the equipment or service to perform laser scanning and 3D modeling of all internal or external areas of your site. Applications include:

  • Piping design integration with as-built laser scanned data to ensure accurate design fit-up
  • Virtual navigation of ALL relevant areas (Containment, Turbine, Aux, SOCA) that allow for better outage planning
  • Accurate 2D GA’s delivered based upon as-built laser scan data
  • Verify design installation and connectivity parameters for new piping systems and equipment to be installed
  • Providing precision measurement for manufacturers of primary and secondary side components

Providing precision measurements services for large bore valve and piping replacements for containment, turbine building and auxiliary buildings on:

  • Primary service water
  • Feed water heater
  • FAC piping
  • Steam piping and valve replacement
  • Turbine alignments
  • Polar crane and turbine building crane rotation and alignment
      Providing design verification and alignment fit-up services for:
  • Main step up transformers
  • Hydro plant transformers
  • Force on force virtual security training
  • Safety planning

Each of our team members have prior employment approval to ensure customers receive credible people that have the knowledge and experience with nuclear power plants. The API Services team has application engineers and technicians that are experienced in the nuclear processes and procedures. Our team has worked on:

  • Steam generators
  • Pressurizers
  • Moisture separator re-heaters
  • Heat exchangers
  • Feed water heaters
  • Sump strainer layout

Our highly precise equipment and efficient processes allow us to provide precision measurement services for manufacturers of primary and secondary side components for the nuclear industry. We also provide for large bore valve and piping replacements for containment, turbine building and auxiliary buildings (primary service water, feed water heater and FAC piping).
Our 3D laser scanning and 3D modeling services allow us to work inside and outside of containment for the following uses in the nuclear industry:

  • Security upgrades
  • Piping designing overlay to as-built laser scanned data to ensure proper design implementation
  • Remote viewing of containment areas that allow for better outage planning
  • Provide 2D and 3D drawings based upon as-built laser scan data and verify design parameters for new piping systems to be installed
