EGS Electrical Penetration Assemblies

Electrical Penetration Assemblies (EPAs) transfer electrical power and signals through the containment wall and ensure the containment pressure boundary is maintained during design basis accident conditions. This dual function, as a safety-related electrical and mechanical device, makes the EPA an unique nuclear component.

EPAs are configured with individual feedthrough modules that are mounted to a bulkhead flange, header plate, or canister. Feedthrough modules are constructed with electrical conductors to pass electrical signals or power, insulators, and seals in a stainless steel housing. Feedthrough modules and the bulkhead flange aperture are supplied with double redundant seals and internal nitrogen gas containment space for leakage monitoring.
