Table Top Reactor (cropped)

Please join us for a demonstration of the University of Hartford’s sub-scale, see-through power plant.  This operating model accurately mimics a two loop Pressurized Water Reactor.  This table top model can demonstrate start-up, normal operating and off-normal occurrences for PWRs.  The glass components allow students to visually ascertain recirculating flow in U-tube steam generators, nucleate boiling and other fundamental PWR characteristics.
