In-service inspection (ISI) is carried out to confirm the integrity of the main components of the Fast Breeder Reactor (FBR) “MONJU”. The weld-joints are examined by using an inspection device which has a glass fiber scope for visual examination and a horizontally polarized shear (SH) wave electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) for volumetric testing. The ambient temperature during the inspection is 200°C and the irradiation field is 10 Sv/hr. A new inspection device has been developed in order to improve the visual test performance, volumetric test performance and controllability of the inspection device reflecting the experience of the original test. In this paper, detail of the new inspection device and the test results of sensors such as the CCD camera, EMAT and bead sensor are reported. The paper also reports on the CCD camera cooling system and other components.
