13th ASME/NRC Pump & Valve Symposium


DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC, Silver Spring, MD

July 16-19, 2017


Presentation Abstract Submission.

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) are jointly sponsoring the 13th Pump & Valve Symposium July 16-19, 2017, in Silver Spring, Maryland, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC - Silver Spring.

The 2017 Pump & Valve Symposium (P&V) will cover the latest issues, technology, developments and research in the pre-service and in-service testing of nuclear power plants and components.   Pre-service and in-service testing is essential in ensuring that nuclear power plants are operating safely and their readiness for safe shutdown.  The field is rapidly changing.  The symposium will cover important topics in pre-service and in-service testing from the perspective of industry best practices and ASME codes.

Previous P&Vs have attracted leaders in nuclear energy, including: Southern Nuclear Co., Duke Energy, Exelon Corp., Tennessee Valley Authority, PSE&G, Dominion, Idaho National Laboratory, Westinghouse Electric, GE Hitachi, National Technical Systems (NTS), and True North Consulting. 

Submit an Abstract
Practicing experts, including those in utilities and component manufacturing, who are engaged in in-service disciplines are invited to submit an abstract of up to 400 words. Showcase your organization's research and capabilities at this industry-leading symposium.
