Screening Tests of Mechanical Pipe Joints for a Fused Salt Reactor System

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The testing and evaluation of three types of mechanical joints in a circulating molten fluoride salt system, at temperatures up to 1600 F, were accomplished. The feasibility of these joints for use in a large scale molten salt system is discussed. Design criteria and operating techniques are described. Measurements were made of the leakage rates of helium through the Joints. The effects of thermal cycling, atmospheric oxidation, salt corrosion, and thermal stresses were noted. Disassembly and reassembly procedures are described. ( auth)
