DTS has been using its Solids Collection Filter (SCF) at BWRs
to support suppression pool/torus diving and desludging activities. A robotic crawler (pictured here)
can also be combined with the SCF for desludging equipment pits and sumps. A high-pressure
spray on the underside of the crawler easily removes stubborn film from metal surfaces,
and dislodges debris from crevices and drains.
