A nuclear plant is a remarkable power source that generates heat through a fission reactor, without emitting any harmful greenhouse gasses. This heat is then converted into electricity using heat exchangers and turbines.
The process begins with the splitting of uranium atoms, which creates fission products. These particles, in turn, trigger the splitting of other uranium atoms, setting off a chain reaction. The energy released from this reaction produces intense heat, which can be effectively cooled using water. The superheated steam, reaching temperatures of around 300°C, is then channeled directly into a turbine to generate electricity. The cooling system operates at pressures of approximately 150 Bar.
In 1977, FITTINOX was established with a mission to produce all types of fittings required for fluid and gas transportation in French nuclear power plants. Over the years, we have earned prestigious certifications from renowned organizations such as EDF, WESTINGHOUSE, and FRAMATOME.
Today, we are proud to supply fittings for nuclear power plants across the globe. Our clients span countries like Canada, France, Spain, Belgium, Brazil, Switzerland, Finland, Germany, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Congo, China, Korea, South Africa, and Argentina.
