Implementation of the engineering safeguards program (ESP) into nuclear fuel recycle facilities

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The principal objective of ORNL-ESP is to demonstrate process monitoring as it might be accomplished by inspectors of any nuclear fuel recycle facility. Improved instrumentation and computer interfacing, currently being installed, provide the ORNL /sup 233/U Pilot Plant with the capability of a dynamic volume balance in the solvent extraction system. Later, an accurate, (almost) instantaneous fissile mass balance will be routinely obtainable in the Pilot Plant. Subsidiary objectives include minimizing MUF/LEMUF, detecting material diversions, and alerting appropriate authorities in control of the facility in case of process anomalies. A continuing program will examine technology which might be utilized for ... continued below

Subsidiary objectives include minimizing MUF/LEMUF, detecting material diversions, and alerting appropriate authorities in control of the facility in case of process anomalies. A continuing program will examine technology which might be utilized for facility design. Ultimately, process monitoring/control integrated with safeguards can convert the ORNL /sup 233/U Pilot Plant into a partial safeguards demonstration facility.
