The experience gained from conducting an ASME Steam Turbine code testing using radioactive tracers has confirmed the encouraging results obtained during initial feasibility studies. The test also demonstrated the practicability of this method for testing steam turbines operating in the wet region from steam supplied by light water nuclear reactors. Recommendations for the location and installation of the sample and injection points are included, together with an outline of the equipment and procedures used during the testing.
