Advanced Fuel Cell Development Progress Report: January-March 1979

Advanced Fuel Cell Development Progress Report: January-March 1979

Date: September 1979
Creator: Pierce, R. D.; Nelson, P. A. & Arons, R. M.
Description: Quarterly report discussing fuel cell research and development work at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). This report describes efforts directed toward understanding and improving the components of molten-carbonate-electrolyte fuel cells operated at temperatures near 925 K. The primary focus of this work has been the development of electrolyte structures that have good electrolyte retention and mechanical properties as well as long-term stability, and on developing methods of synthesis amendable to mass production.

Di-n-Amyl-n-Amylphosphonate and Tricaprylmethylammonium Nitrate as Potential Extractants for Reprocessing Th-U Fuels

Di-n-Amyl-n-Amylphosphonate and Tricaprylmethylammonium Nitrate as Potential Extractants for Reprocessing Th-U Fuels

Date: September 1979
Creator: Diamond, H.
Description: Both 2F di-n-amyl-n-amylphosphonate in n-dodecane (DA(AP)-DD) and 0.77F tricaprylmethylammonium nitrate in Aromatic 100 (TCMA.NO/sub 3/-AR100) extract uranium and thorium into relatively concentrated organic solutions. Countercurrent-flow tests with each extractant have demonstrated effective uranium-thorium separations by selective stripping from the organic phase. Both extractants offer advantageous alternatives to tributylphosphate (Thorex) in reprocessing irradiated mixed ThO2-UO2 fuels. Formic acid is used for removing thorium from DA(AP)-DD; dilute HNO3 removes uranium from TCMA.NO3-AR100. Spectra of plutonium in formic acid are shown. The use of concentrated TCMA.NO3-AR100 at 50 to 65/sup 0/C avoids viscosity problems and suppresses third-phase formation. Thorium extracts into concentrated TCMA.NO/sub 3/-AR100 in greater amounts than would be predicted from stoichiometric assumptions.

Review and Analysis of Spray Combustion as Related to Alternative Fuels

Review and Analysis of Spray Combustion as Related to Alternative Fuels

Date: September 1979
Creator: Black, C. H.; Chiu, H. H.; Fischer, J. & Clinch, J. M.
Description: A review was conducted during the period of mid-June to mid-August 1979, of the literature on spray combustion. Particular attention has been paid to theoretical and experimental work on droplet and spray combustion applicable to the use of alternate fuels, mainly liquid fuels derived from coal and shale.

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Moab NTMS Quadrangle, Utah/Colorado, Including Concentrations of Forty-Three Additional Elements

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Moab NTMS Quadrangle, Utah/Colorado, Including Concentrations of Forty-Three Additional Elements

Date: September 1979
Creator: Goff, Sue & Warren, Richard G.
Description: Partial abstract: "During the summers of 1976, 1977, and 1978, 442 water and 1755 sediment samples were collected from 1801 locations within the 19 400 km2 area of the Moab quadrangle, Utah and Colorado, by private contractors for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. Water samples were collected from streams, springs, and wells; wet and dry sediment samples were collected both from stream channels and from springs. Each water sample was analyzed for 13 elements, including uranium, and each sediment sample was analyzed for 43 elements, including uranium, thorium, and vanadium. All field and analytical data are listed in the appendixes of this report" (p. 1).

Design of a System using CPC Collectors to Collect Solar Energy and to Produce Industrial Process Steam

Design of a System using CPC Collectors to Collect Solar Energy and to Produce Industrial Process Steam

Date: August 1979
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory. Solar Energy Group.
Description: A system has been designed to use CPC collectors to collect solar energy and to generate steam for industrial process heat purposes. The system is divided into two loops with the collectors in the collector loop to operate a pre-heater and the collectors in the boiler loop to heat water to elevated pressures and temperatures. A flash boiler is used to throttle the heated water to steam. Two types of CPC collectors are chosen. In the collector loop the CPC collectors are fitted with concentric tube receivers. In the boiler loop the collectors employ heat pipes to transmit heat. This design is able to alleviate the scaling and plumbing problems. A fragile receiver tube can also be employed without rupture difficulties. The thermal processes in the collectors were analyzed using a computer modeling. The results were also used to develop a thermodynamic analysis of the total system. Calculations show that the design is technically feasible. The CPC collector is shown to have an efficiency that is very weakly dependent on its operating temperatures, which makes the collector particularly attractive in high temperature applications.
