Unsigned remark[edit]

This article seems to be more of a of two alternative techniques than a description of comparison than PHWR.

Suggested merge[edit]

This article contains a great deal of excellent material relevant to heavy water reactors in general, but which is not specific to the popular high-pressure design choice used in CANDU. This material should be moved to the Heavy water reactor article, and what remains at this article (if anything), should be just enough to make clear the differences between high-pressure and lower-pressure designs of heavy water reactors, which this article fails to do at present. We might also want to investigate whether general material at the CANDU article might better be merged into this article. --arkuat (talk) 04:22, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I suggest we wait or merge only one section. I accept your thesis that the section "pupose of using heavy water" should be merged into the heavy water reactor article. Would you be willing to move the merge header to just that section?
In regards to the resulting "loss of content," I hope to be able to boost the content in this article with information on some of the different PHWR designs, especially if more information on the Indian reactors becomes available after the implementation of the United States-India Peaceful Atomic Energy Cooperation Act and related IAEA Safegaurds Agreement. I suppose what I'm really saying is that this is a work in progress from my perspective. Revr J (talk) 17:59, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Merge. I don't see any reason why all HWR's cannot be described under a single article. None of the articles involved are lengthy enough to require splitting the topic into sub-articles. Heavy water reactor is currently a stub, and this article is still fairly short. I'm not familiar with Low Pressure HWR's, can someone provide a link? Mishlai (talk) 11:31, 29 October 2008 (UTC)


Merge was done apparently on 20 August 2011. 70.24.246.151 (talk) 07:24, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

Can we please spell the title of the page right. It is pressurized. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.35.203.2 (talk) 19:17, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Pressurised is the British variant, so both are correct. Mishlai (talk) 11:32, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Pressurised heavy water reactorHeavy water reactorRelisted. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:40, 27 August 2011 (UTC) This article doesn't specifically discuss pressurized reactors, instead heavy-water reactors of all types. The page should be moved to reflect this. The destination page was a merge source and should not be deleted. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 23:11, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment there's a big problem with this article, since HWR was merged into it. Undo the merge and then merge generic information about HWR to the HWR article. After that, see if there is a need for a separate PHWR article. If not, do a second merge. (as separate steps, so we can examine the merge history more properly) 70.24.246.151 (talk) 07:26, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
