The aijective of: the National HTGR Fuel Recycle Development
Programty is tir develop recycle technology so that commercial plants
for refal +ad Z=.of:BHTGR fuels can be built and operated economically.
To a caog:afr tiis objective, it is necessary to perform equipment
and Iri sw dimvelopment involving engineering, design, and testing.
The rey::tm fueml must: be handled in Laavily shielded facilities
because of the presence of some 292U which has dg r-products that
emit Ugh-energy-gasma radiation. The particular portion of this
-program. d'sedreA here is concerned with coating of the recycle fuel
partilas.. (Yur objective is to develop remote coating technology
and toa demonstrate. this technology by operation in 1979 of a pilot
plant Iacatedi within- the Thorium-Uranium Recycle Facility (TURF)
Thmj pax ia- coating task includes particle inspection and
partil- hand:ing;i-.addition to the coating operation. T!.e
particle- must: e.saml.d- and inspected. They must be classified co
the. prpem sizs range and shape separated, and provisions must be
made for perrt+ '-- transfer, storage, and blending. Only in the case
of partcIe in:plectin can the operations be performed in glove
boes; the reainizng- operations involve kilogram rather, gram
quantities of* fiter,. and thus the shielding provided by a- hot cell is
