In addition to these there were several other
very short- shutdowns due to scheduled power outages, loss
of N2 pressure at the test site, and other momentary power
A set of measured cycle conditions for loop #2
along with the predicted or design cycle conditions are
given in Table 2.1.2.
188.8.131.52 Loop #3
Loop #3 is now the 5000 hour biphenyl loop. It
formerly was a 2500 hour loop but, due to operational
problems encountered with loop #4, loop #3 has been
redesignated the 5000 hour loop.
Loop #3 was charged with biphenyl on 5-15-67 and
run for 1025 hours. At that time a weld on the liquid sample
line broke and air leaked into the condenser. The loop was
shutdown for repairs.
While repairs were underway a freeze plug in the
hotwell outlet line that was being worked on unfroze and a
significant amount of biphenyl (about 20-25% of the loop
inventory) was spilled.
It was decided to drain the rest of biphenyl as
well as reasonably possible without dismantling the loop.
S Apprb imately 80% of the initial inventory was removed,
Here’s what’s next.
