Interim report on the feasibility study of acoustic leak location for WTD steam generators. [LMFBR]

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This interim report summarizes the current status of a feasibility study of an acoustic leak location system for two Westinghouse-Tampa Division (WTD) double-wall steam generators. The primary WTD design requirement is that a leak of helium gas into sodium be located to within a cluster of seven tubes at hot standby conditions. The report documents the results of an extensive analytical assessment, outlines areas of concern resulting from the analyses which will require experimental validation, and presents results of experiments thus far completed. The conclusion of the study at this time is that acoustic leak location is feasible, pending the ... continued below

Description

This interim report summarizes the current status of a feasibility study of an acoustic leak location system for two Westinghouse-Tampa Division (WTD) double-wall steam generators. The primary WTD design requirement is that a leak of helium gas into sodium be located to within a cluster of seven tubes at hot standby conditions. The report documents the results of an extensive analytical assessment, outlines areas of concern resulting from the analyses which will require experimental validation, and presents results of experiments thus far completed. The conclusion of the study at this time is that acoustic leak location is feasible, pending the results of the remaining experimental tests. The acoustic leak location system operates on the same principles as the acoustic leak detection system being developed under SG027, Subtask X2. Analyses indicate that, in general, the location system will use similar design parameters to the acoustic leak detection system. Much of the hardware can be indentical, in particular the accelerometers. It is recommended that a minicomputer/software approach be employed rather than the custom-designed hardware approach used for the detection system.
