RPV Stud Caps
Preferred Engineering’s RPV Stud Caps are designed to isolate the Elongation Rods and RPV stud cores. The Stud Caps are machined from billet aluminum and use a hardcoat anodize protective finish. A passively retained O-Ring provide sealing thus allowing Elongation Rods to remain inside the RPV Stud eliminating ‘soak’ times which are required to acclimate the Elongation Rods to temperature.
- Recess for elongation rod clearance eliminates the need to remove them and eliminates ‘soak’ time prior to tensioning
- Passively retained O-Ring, no glue or hardware required.
- Square drive for fast and accurate installation with torque wrench.
