As part of the Timken Power Systems network, Philadelphia Gear – through its sister brand Schulz Electric – now has the ability to service equipment that’s been contaminated during the power generation process on nuclear vessels.
Though this is a relatively small part of the Navy’s fleet – there are eight motors on each CVN that fall into this category, for example – it does present a unique set of problems in the handling, decontamination and repair of critical equipment.
We have a solution. Schulz Electric is NRC licensed to decontaminate not only motors, but gearboxes and other mechanical or electrical parts as necessary, and return them to an unconditional free-release status.
Along with Schulz’s radiation safety officer, trained radiation workers receive and conduct surveys on incoming items to determine their level of contamination, which takes place in our 2,000 sq. ft. restricted access area.
Since securing our license and opening the facility in 2006, we have worked on more than 500 pieces of equipment, and are extremely proud of the fact that we’ve managed to return over 90% of those units to an unconditional free-release status.
All inspection, decontamination and repair work is conducted in compliance with 10 CFR 50 Appendix B, NQA-1-1994 Nuclear QA program, and ISO 9001-2008.
