In addition to the above, a shower and scrub sink shall
be provided in the basement of the Control Building as close as is practical
to the tunnel connecting to the main building; these facilities will be used for
personnel decontamination. A stainless steel laboratory sink shall be pro-
vided in the basement laboratory room. Hot and cold water supply for these
basement facilities shall come from the domestic storage tank and hot water
heater, but drains from these as well as from floor drains in the basement
shall pass to the main building sumps and thence to the retention tanks. A
foot valve or other suitable device shall be placed in this drain line to pre-
vent any back flow of contaminated water into the Control Building.
Provision shall be made for 15 persons to remain with-
in the Control Building for a period of 48 hr in the event of an incident re-
sulting in contamination of the surrounding area. A kitchen-type sink shall
be installed in the lunch room on the basement floor of the control building,
and provision shall be made for the installation of an electric cooking stove,
a refrigerator, a food freezer, and cooking utensil storage cabinets. (The
Laboratory shall provide this equipment.)
Compressed Air (Instrument) -An air compressor
having a capacity of 15 cfm at 120 psig shall supply instrument air, if
required. Filters and driers shall be furnished to provide positive pro-
tection from moisture, oil, and particulate matter. Driers shall be of
the type utilizing silica gel as the drying medium. The system should
include the equivalent of a Dollinger CPH-2 pre-filter, a Kemp drier with
Vapoilsorid unit, and a Dollinger AAPH-15 post-filter unit. The entire
compressor system shall be located in the basement in a sound reducing
One overhead, top-running double-girder traveling crane
for standby use in maintenance and repair of machinery and components,
as well as for moving reactor top shielding and vessel cover, is required.
The crane has a span of 37 ft 0 in. and has a full load capacity of 40 tons.
The crane bridge shall be constructed of box girders or rolled beam shapes
capped by suitable ASCE rails.
The crane hook shall be capable of approaching the crane
rail on the water cooler area side of the High Bay Area within 3 ft, and
shall be capable of approaching either end wall of the High Bay Area within
5 ft. The total lift of the crane shall be sufficient to permit the hook to
approach the floor of the active equipment pit to within 4 ft.
With the hoisting motor of the crane operating at synchro-
nous speed, the speed of vertical movement of the crane hook shall be
10 ft/min. The controller shall be full magnetic type, having not less than
