20180706 | Part21 | PART 21 NOTIFICATION - HEX NUTS AND CAP SCREWS ON CERTAIN VEE-BALL VALVES NOT PROPERLY DEDICATED |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53489

Fisher Controls issued FIN 2018-02 for hex nuts and caps screws for securing the valve body-to-actuator on eight valves
(six purchased by D.C. Cook Nuclear and two purchased by Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power) that were not commercial grade dedicated.

Fisher became aware of this issue on May 7, 2018.

20180507 | MI_Cook_2 | MANUAL RX TRIP DUE TO HIGH-HIGH LEVEL IN MOISTURE SEPARATOR DRAIN TANK |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53387
RFOD_058; PO->Hot Standby


20180507 | MI_Cook_2 | Exit RFO

[ Was shutdown for four days after. There's a good chance that the shutdown during restart was caused by failure of the bolts. ]
[ Notice that the time between when they became aware of the problem and when they reported it is 60 days. ]

[ This type of delayed reporting makes it difficult to associate events/results. ]
[ IMO it's done purposefully in hopes that no one is paying attention, but that may just be my distrust of corporations/governments due to the fact that history has exposed them to be liars, cheats and thieves when it comes to making a profit, no matter the cost. ]  

[ So now the licensee has 60 days to produce an LER ( Licensee Evaluation Report ). Don't be surprised if near the end of the 60 days a retraction is issued due to the fact that they fabricated err... found the documentation which shows the bolts  were commercial grade or an engineering eval has determined that substandard parts are ok to use. ]
