discharges a “water curtain” across

the boundary areas separating the

redundant systems. The staff's

present position is that such systems

should feature close-spaced,

open-head sprinklers with water

discharge initiated by tripping a

deluge valve activated by crosszoned

smoke detectors.” Installation

of a “water curtain” partition

within the fire compartment

ensured that both paths were safe

for post-fire hot shutdown.

(4) Install fire separation walls. Specifications:

1. Fire resistance of

3 hours. 2. Extending from wall to

wall and from floor to ceiling.

3. Fire door with a 3-hour rating to

facilitate access by personnel.

4. Air ducts that pass through the

fire separation wall. A fire damper

with a 3-hour rating must be

installed within the section that

passes through the fire separation

wall. 5. A sleeve must be added to

all piping that penetrates the fire

separation wall. The sleeve must

be sealed using fire-resistant

material with a rating of 3 h. 6. The

cable net passing through the fire

separation wall must be filled with

fire-resistant materials with a

rating of 3 h [Generic Letters,

1986]. The post-fire hot shutdown

cable for FZ 17 runs through an

aisle; therefore, fire separation

walls are feasible only in FZ 1.

The definitions and improvement

plans associated with inventive

principle #10 are as follows:

10a: Perform all modifications in

advance. Rearrange cables (relatively

low cost.)

10b: Install items or systems in

advance to ensure that they are

ready when and where that may


FZ 1 contains mostly Series A cables

as well as 22 Series B cables. The

post-fire hot shutdown cable list

( Table 5) revealed that 11 of the

cables (number 1-11) can be re-laid

along new paths, such that only 11

cables (number 12-22) from Series B

remain within FZ 1. At this point 10b
