SONGS (San Onofre) was shut down once for rusting of the 'egg crates'
of this same steam generator. Oh, the 'crates' are just fine on the
levels that are seimically most sensitive...blah blah blah IT'S A 30
YEAR OLD RUST BUCKET and that was almost ten years ago.
Now, not only are the egg crates (aka like radiator copper
accordions) rusting out more and more but the damn tubes are rusted
through! Its curtains for this generator. A $100 million
piece of hot junk. So, it's time once again to Petition NRC to shut
it down pending analysis, not only of the structurals but now also
of the steam tubes themselves! This is so close to
blowing all I can say is GET AWAY! The Edison Asstards will run this
rust bucket until it blows, then blow town...wake up people! Of
course, rusty tubes means its DEFINITELY NOT SEISMICALLY STRONG
ENOUGH NOW as it was such a close call even before when it was just
some crates on level nine.
PS At that time of inspection the huge rusty vaslve at the
bottom of the steam generator looked bad and sure enough it was
totally non operational, so what? Well it was the ECCS1
valve....soo??? ECCS1 is the main Emergency Core Cooling System #1
Valve !!! Which is supposed to open easily and automatically
when needed to reflood a damaged core.. Ok, they
replaced it and then turned the damn place back up 100% full blast !
Get a clue, nether science, ecology, govt regulations,
inspectors nor pesky geologists cannot keep one of these evil
monsters shut down, they are designed to pour out radiation FOREVER
! Get a ticket to Antarctica !
