12. Hydrostatic Test System
Because a hydrostatic test of the reactor vessel top closure
will be required each time it is assembled on the vessel, a permanent hy-
draulic test system is incorporated by running a line from the reactor make-
up pumps to the primary system drain header, through which water may be
delivered to any part of the primary system.
13. Sampling System
The sampling lines, shown at various points on the flow
charts, are to be located as close to the source as possible to achieve mini-
G. Instrumentation and Control
The experimental nature of the ARBOR facility requires
that extraordinary emphasis be placed on the instrumentation and control of
the system. In addition to wide coverage of primary system steam flow,
forced-circulation flow, temperatures and pressures, provision is made for
special devices within the reactor to measure local flows and temperatures
at various points in the core. Most of the measurements and control of both
primary and auxiliary systems will be accomplished remotely from the con-
trol room. The following basic control systems are involved in the primary
a. Reactor (nuclear)
b. Reactor water level and feed-water flow
c. Water coolers
d. Condensers and hotwell
e. Turbine and bypass simulator .
In addition, several emergency and shut-down systems are
provided for safety during abnormal operation. These are:
a. Reactor scram
(1) Control rods
(2) Chemical shut-down
b. Emergency shut-down cooling
(1) Shut-down coolers
(2) Core spray
c. Pressure relief.
