Part 21 Report - 1996-810

ACCESSION #: 9612100147 LONG ISLAND LIGHTING COMPANY November 26, 1996 SSD-96-213 U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Region I 475 Allendale Road King of Prussia, PA 19406-1415 Attention: Document Control Desk Subject: Potential 10CFR21 Condition Velan 2" Piston Check Valve Velan Part# W08-2034B-02TS Dear Sirs; Recently, it was discovered that two safety related valves supplied to the Shoreham Nuclear Power Station by the Velan Valve Corporation were not in compliance with the originally supplied Quality Assurance documentation. Since the Shoreham Nuclear Plant is no longer licensed this does not pose a safety hazard, but we do, from time to time get requests from other nuclear utilities to purchased our warehouse spare parts. An inspection of the valves found that the heat number "C9226", etched onto each valve disk, was not the same as the heat number documented on the Velan certification documents. These documents (Velan Certificate of Compliance, ASME documentation, and the accompanying manufacture's Certified Material Test Report) identified the valve disk material as heat number "J3316". Velan Valve Corporation was originally notified of the discrepancy in December 1995 . The valves were returned to Velan in May of 1996 at Velan's request. Since that time we have been unable to obtain a resolution from Velan. On November 20, 1996, LILCO was advised by Velan that the two valves in question had been misplaced. No further information has been offered by Velan. In that we are unable to obtain from Velan information necessary to evaluate the significance of this discrepancy, it is our feeling that we are consequently unable to take any further action relative to this matter. Attached is a copy of our letter to Velan, along with our own internal Deficiency Report which we are closing at this time by virtue of this notification. If you have any questions or desire any further information please contact me at 516-929-6735 or at the Shoreham Facility, 1 LILCO Road, Shoreham, NY 11786. Timothy P. Curt, Manager Shoreham Salvage Division. Attachments: 1. LILCO Deficiency Report (LDR) 95-003 2. SSD-95-322, Letter to Velan Dated December 12, 1996 cc: J.D. Leonard J.M.
