Unplanned Downtime for Repair and Maintenance at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s
Explosive Destruction System
The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s Explosive Destruction System (PCAPP EDS), is currently experiencing unplanned downtime in order to conduct a maintenance and repair operation on the system. During vessel cleanout operations following the last successful operation of the system, it was discovered that the sealing surface on the EDS door was damaged. Despite the damage to the vessel’s door seal, procedures and safeguards functioned as designed, and there were no injuries or agent releases during the operation. The door will be repaired, and then the affected area will be re-machined to the original design specification.
As always, thank you for your continued interest in the PCAPP project, and please feel free to contact Pueblo Outreach Office at 719-546-0400 with any questions.
