The advanced pressurized water reactor (APWR) designed by Westinghouse uses a passive safety system which relies on heat removal by condensation to maintain the containment within the design limits of pressure and temperature. Steam condensation inside surface of the containment is one of the most important phenomena during heat removing process in the passive containment cooling system (PCCS). It is very significant for engineering design and code development to study the mechanism of steam condensation on cold surface. There was an experiment done by University of Wisconsin on this subject. However, the pressure equipment cannot support high pressure. In this paper, new pressure equipment was designed. It can support higher pressure and also meet other thermal measurement requirements.
