Request for Design of a Fuel Element Assembly Soak Test

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

It is requested that the design be completed for a full-scale fuel element soak test. The test assembly must be designed to permit the fuel element test specimen to be submerged in a lithium bath under a pressure of 60 psi. The maximum temperature of the lithium is to be 2000 F. A total of four test units will be required to complete the test program. Two specimens will be exposed to a thermal cycle between 2000 F and 1400 F with the remaining two specimens being exposed to a thermal cycle between 2000 F and 1000 F. Heating will ... continued below

The test assembly must be designed to permit the fuel element test specimen to be submerged in a lithium bath under a pressure of 60 psi. The maximum temperature of the lithium is to be 2000 F. A total of four test units will be required to complete the test program. Two specimens will be exposed to a thermal cycle between 2000 F and 1400 F with the remaining two specimens being exposed to a thermal cycle between 2000 F and 1000 F. Heating will be done at the rate of 200 F/hour preceded by a 150 hour soak at 2000 F. Heat will be supplied by clam-shell type heaters. The test specimen - lithium system will be contained by a Cb-lZr vessel which will be surrounded by a 310 steel container. The heating units will be mounted on the outside of this 310 S.S. container. A bottom fill line is requested in order to insure a lithium system free from gas pockets. A slow lithium fill will be made up through the specimen to a level indicated by a probe in the expansion tank.
