    Plant Chemistry & Cleaning Applications

    CONTACT Jeff


    • Nuclear power plant chemistry
    • Chemical process development and application at nuclear facilities

    Mr. Reinders has expertise in a variety of subject areas related to primary and secondary water chemistry control, operations and maintenance in nuclear power plants, including:

    • Primary-to-secondary water chemistry leakage
    • Impurity intrusion and chemistry excursion analysis
    • Zinc application for source term reduction in PWRs
    • Film forming amines for corrosion control
    • Online chemistry monitoring

    Mr. Reinders also has experience in costing and economic modeling for new reactor designs, including small modular reactors, and is currently investigating flexible operations in fossil and nuclear power plants. He has been the primary investigator for 16 EPRI projects and provides consulting to US and non-US utilities on plant chemistry and operational issues at light and heavy water reactors.

    Mr. Reinders is also a subject matter expert in the development, qualification and application of chemical cleaning and treatment processes at nuclear facilities. This includes DEI’s patented LT-ZiP process which suppresses radionuclide uptake and mitigates intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) on reactor system piping after chemical decontamination, and also several steam generator chemical cleaning applications. His roles during these applications have included: process qualification and design prior to site execution at the plant, training of personnel for on-site execution, and on-site consulting support as a process lead and subject matter expert during site execution. He has also been involved in wastewater treatment projects involving supercritical water oxidation and electrochemical processes.

    Mr. Reinders holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University.
