Description: Treatment of Hot Liquid Waste: Three runs, D-73, D-74, and D-75, were made in the model clariflocculator during this period. In D-73 and D-74 a mixture of hydrolysis supernatant and water was used as the original solution and in D-75 a hydrolysis supernatant, bismuth free activity and water mixture was used as the starting solution. D-73 gave acceptable results, but D-74 and D-75 gave results that were not too satisfactory. It is believed that contamination in the laboratory has effected the results. Recovery of Bismuth: Experiments were resumed on the electrolytic extraction of bismuth from a hydrochloric acid solution of bismuth chloride. Plating at elevated temperature with the elimination of calcium chloride resulted in a lower average deposition rate of 2.07 g./amp.{minus}hr. than was obtained at room temperature in the presence of calcium chloride with a deposition rate of 2.30 g./amp.{minus}hr. Another comparison was made between cathodes prepared in a wood mold and a ``Herculite`` mold. Unlike the results obtained in run E-15 in which the cathode prepared in the ``Herculite`` mold gave a greater average deposition rate, the same deposition rate of 2.00 g/amp.{minus}hr. was obtained with both cathodes. The formation of crystals was more prevalent in the case ...

Description: Treatment of Hot Liquid Waste: According to the Eimco Corporation, the filter on order in to be shipped the first week of April. Sketches have been prepared giving the general location of the Eimco filter and equipment to be used in testing the unit. No suitable gauge is available for the tanks to be used in the W. D. Building for storing corrosive solutions. A gauge, to be fabricated from polystyrene, has been designed. Treatment of Hot Solid Burnable Waste: Construction of the model incinerator has been completed. A general discussion of the problem and design of the incinerator is included in the Detailed Report. Some time has been spent gathering together material for the final report covering the experimental work on the disposal of ``hot`` liquid wastes. Recovery of Bismuth: Further work an the electrolytic extraction of bismuth has indicated that the formation of the bismuth deposited on the cathode in neither influenced by etching the electrode with nitric acid nor by varying the cooling rate of the cast electrode. A near theoretical yield was obtained (2.58 g./amp./hr.) by enclosing the cathode in a screen, of glass cloth. The diaphragm, in all probability, reduces the amount of chlorine near ...

Description: Word was received that the Eimco filter has been shipped from the Salt Lake City plant. It is expected within two weeks or about May 10, 1948. In place of a float gauge referred to in the Process Research Progress Report, March 1--31, 1984, a Uehling Tank-O-Meter will be used on the chemical solution tanks for the W. D. Building. Word was also received that the steam ejector has been shipped. It can be expected within the next few days. This item will complete the equipment to be used for the removal of activity from the flue gases produced in the incinerator. Laboratory experiments using synthetic bismuth chloride solutions are considered as completed for the time being. The experiments have shown that good yields, and adherent deposits can be obtained from solutions containing 0.18 g. bismuth/ml. with a 7 N hydrochloric acid concentration, providing a diaphragm is inserted between the anode and cathode. Neither calcium chloride nor pyrogallol are necessary under the conditions mentioned above. Bismuth was plated from a production solution in Run EP-1 in which the activity has been reduced from 4.2 {times} 10{sup 7} c./min./ml. to 4. 2 {times} 10{sup 4} c./min./ml. A yield of 2.48 g./amp.-hr. ...
