Harper International was awarded a contract for a pusher furnace line by KEPCO Nuclear Fuel (KNF). Over the past two years, Harper’s Applications, Engineering & Technology Groups developed an advanced heating system for KNF’s current project of producing nuclear fuel for its pressurized heavy-water reactors. An advanced heating element allows for higher-temperature operation, and an enhanced furnace shell cooling design has been developed. Both yield longer uniform operational life cycles. Harper is compliant with nuclear-specific control systems for mandated upgrades for increased security and reliability. KNF is a group company of KEPCO (Korea Electric Power Corporation), which provides nuclear fuel, equipment and related services to all nuclear power plants in Korea.
