This article summarizes a review of the technology of seal systems for four categories - flanges, elastomers, valves, and pumps was done to develop a data base for the design of the coolant components for a Heavy Water Reactor (HWR). The data base was derived from operating experience and seal development work for reactors in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
