Liquid-metal pumps for large-scale breeder-reactor plant (prototype pump)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report presents the recommended pump design for use in Large Scale Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor plants. The base design for the pump will circulate 127,000 GPM of liquid sodium at temperatures up to 850/sup 0/F and with a total discharge head at the design point of 500 feet Na with an impeller that is 40 feet below the sodium seal. The pump design is predicated on developing an impeller design which will have a suction specific speed (S/sub n/) of about 20,000 with 20 feet NPSH available, which will result in a pump speed of 530 RPM at ... continued below

The pump design is predicated on developing an impeller design which will have a suction specific speed (S/sub n/) of about 20,000 with 20 feet NPSH available, which will result in a pump speed of 530 RPM at design conditions. The design is based on the technology developed in the design and fabrication of FFTF pumps, the design efforts for the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Pump design study and other technology.
