A STUDY OF MODIFICATIONS FOR ORNL LIQUID WASTE SYSTEM. I. HIGH-LEVEL STORAGE TANKS AND INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL EVAPORATOR

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

As a means of reducing the quantity of radioactivity released to the environment by radioactive liquid waste discharges at ORNL, it is proposed that two 50,000-gal stainless steel storage tanks and a 600 gph stainless steel, submerged-coil evaporator be installed. The tanks, approximately 10 ft in diameter by 85 ft long, will be equipped with cooling coils attached to their outside surfaces for removal of a maximum of 300,000 Btu/hr of decay heat, and will be supported inside a concrete vauit for containment. The evaporator and a feed tank will be installed inside a cell shielded with 5 ft of ... continued below

Description

As a means of reducing the quantity of radioactivity released to the environment by radioactive liquid waste discharges at ORNL, it is proposed that two 50,000-gal stainless steel storage tanks and a 600 gph stainless steel, submerged-coil evaporator be installed. The tanks, approximately 10 ft in diameter by 85 ft long, will be equipped with cooling coils attached to their outside surfaces for removal of a maximum of 300,000 Btu/hr of decay heat, and will be supported inside a concrete vauit for containment. The evaporator and a feed tank will be installed inside a cell shielded with 5 ft of concrete and will process mainly intermediate-level waste from the concrete tank farm, but will be able to evaporate high-level waste as well, if required. Two additional cells for the condenser and other off-gas equipment will be housed with the evaporator cell in a building with an operating area and sampling gallery. The capital cost of this installation is estimated to be 226,000. (auth)
