Production of (Uranium) Tetrafluoride

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Production of tetrafluoride for the month of April was 49,400. New equipment installed late in March operated smoothly and the production was slightly over the rated capacity of the plant. Nickel ends were welded on to the steel reactor tubes to prevent corrosion at the cover joint and possible contamination of the product with iron. The nickel ends will also save considerable repair work on the tube ends. The magnesium trays for some of the reactors are beginning to crack at the sides from frequent straightening. The trays are bent out of shape by the expansion of the product and ... continued below

Description

Production of tetrafluoride for the month of April was 49,400. New equipment installed late in March operated smoothly and the production was slightly over the rated capacity of the plant. Nickel ends were welded on to the steel reactor tubes to prevent corrosion at the cover joint and possible contamination of the product with iron. The nickel ends will also save considerable repair work on the tube ends. The magnesium trays for some of the reactors are beginning to crack at the sides from frequent straightening. The trays are bent out of shape by the expansion of the product and are reshaped by hammering over a die. Some of the cracks have been repaired by welding but this is not very satisfactory because the welded trays are harder to straighten and often crack again.
