Nuclear power plants

In the early 1970’s, Kleyfrance has developed anti-whip restraint solutions for nuclear power plants, in partnership with CEA and Areva (formerly Framatome).


These systems serve to prevent sudden whipping of steam pipes of reactor cooling circuit. In case of pipe failure, a significant amount of energy would be released by pressurized steam. In this instance, anti-whip systems would act to efficiently absorb this energy, ensuring the damage would not be further propagated to the rest of circuit.

Kleyfrance is also able to provide special piping supports erected in the reactor building of NPP. All our equipment, designed and manufactured are in compliance with RCC-M code.
