I. PROJECT OBJECTIVES
-36380 189a Number: SA004
This project has several tasks, each with its own specific objectives. One
of these tasks is the Sodium Removal Process Development. The first objective
of this task was to develop and evaluate techniques for sodium (Na) removal from
components by the reaction of sodium with alcohol. The culmination of this pro-
gram was the incorporation of the Sodium Removal Process in the DOE Standard
F 5-9, and a Topical Report presenting the pertinent sodium-alcohol reaction
rate data. The second objective of this task is to determine the process para-
meters for the removal of Na from test specimens and components by the use of
A second task of this project is the Decontamination Process Development.
The objective of this effort is to develop a well-characterized chemical decon-
tamination process for application to the LMFBR primary system components
that subsequently permits contact maintenance and allows requalification of the
components for reuse in reactors.
A new task, decontamination by sputtering, was initiated last fiscal year.
The objective of this task is to determine the feasibility of using argon ion
sputtering as a method for removing diffused radioisotopes from LMFBR com-
Another new task, Metal Removal Studies on Type 316 Stainless Steel, was
initiated last fiscal year. •' ~
