Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) as a result of excessive tensile stress is a recognized problem which can compromise nuclear plant safety and availability. MSIP® (Mechanical Stress Improvement Process) is a patented, permanent solution for mitigating SCC in Nuclear Plant piping weldments.
MSIP is accepted by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a stress improvement process for mitigation of stress corrosion cracking in both boiling water reactor (BWR) and pressurized water reactor (PWR) plants. MSIP is also used to prevent SCC in RBMK piping welds.
