Title (EN) A SPACER AND A FUEL UNIT FOR A NUCLEAR PLANT
(FR) ELEMENT D'ECARTEMENT ET ASSEMBLAGE DE COMBUSTIBLE POUR UNE INSTALLATION NUCLEAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention refers to a spacer for holding a number if elongated fuel rods (5) intended to be located in a nuclear plant and to a fuel unit having such spacers. The spacer (30) encloses a number of cells (31), which each has a longitudinal axis and is arranged to re­ceive a fuel rod (5) in such a way that the fuel rod extends in paral­lel with the longitudinal axis (x). Each cell (31) is formed by a sleeve-like member (32). Each sleeve-like member (32) is manu­factured in a sheet-shaped material (60) that is bent to the sleeve­like shape.
(FR)L'invention concerne un élément d'écartement destiné à contenir un certain nombre de barres (5) allongées de combustible, destinées à être disposées dans une installation nucléaire et un assemblage de combustible comportant lesdits éléments d'écartement. L'élément (30) d'écartement contient un certain nombre de cellules (31), chacune présentant un axe longitudinal et conçues pour recevoir une barre (5) de combustible, de sorte que la barre de combustible s'étend parallèlement à l'axe longitudinal (x). Chaque cellule (31) est formée par un organe (32) en forme de manchon. Chaque organe (32) en forme d'un manchon est produit à partir d'un matériau (60) en tôle, formé en manchon.
