The following sections present the design requirements
for the above systems and components. Detailed specifications are not
given in every case. The items which the Laboratory will supply are in-
cluded in order to give the Architect-Engineer a more comprehensive pic-
ture of the over-all plant.
2. Primary System
The primary system is composed of those components
which contain the high-pressure, high-temperature reactor water, steam, -
and condensate, and which comprise the two closed loops involved in re-
actor heat removal. In order to achieve satisfactory corrosion resistance
of all surfaces which contact primary system fluids water or steam, AISI
Type 304, 316, or 347 stainless steel shall be used for such surfaces.
(Carbon steel shall be used in the steam disposal system for Steps I and II.)
The specifications for the reactor vessel are repro-
duced as Appendix B of this report. All reactor internals, as well as
control rod drive mechanisms, will be designed and constructed by the
c. Water Coolers and Steam Condensers
Locations of the water coolers and steam condensers
are shown in Figs. 5, 6, and 8. The water coolers are to be installed for
Step II operation and the steam condensers for Step III.
The information secured to date by the Laboratory on
the water-cooled heat exchangers is available for evaluation and aid in
preparation of specifications.
ARBOR Water Cooled Heat Exchanger Requirements
I. Forced-Circulation Coolers
1. Tube Side-- Primary system demineralized water
2. Shell Side -- Demineralized water
B. Operating Pressure (range)
1. Tube Side-- 600 psia to 2000 psia
2. Shell Side-- 90 psia to 600 psia
