Improved coolant backup 100-B, D, F, DR, H and C areas design study

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Preliminary engineering studies have indicated the need for modifications and improvements to the reactor coolant backup systems of the old areas in order to provide adequate safety of operation at power levels programmed for the future. These evaluations of the coolant backup systems were based on the recently adopted reactor cooling safety criteria. It was concluded that the secondary coolant systems would be adequate in capacity and reliability for the proposed future operating conditions except for certain cases of natural disaster such as earthquake damage. It was concluded that the last ditch coolant systems would be inadequate for the proposed … continued below

These evaluations of the coolant backup systems were based on the recently adopted reactor cooling safety criteria. It was concluded that the secondary coolant systems would be adequate in capacity and reliability for the proposed future operating conditions except for certain cases of natural disaster such as earthquake damage. It was concluded that the last ditch coolant systems would be inadequate for the proposed future reactor operating conditions. The purpose of this report is to define the scope of modifications and improvements required to provide adequate last ditch systems in the old areas for future operating conditions as proposed by the Reactor Modification Program. Irradiation Processing Department, Fiscal Years 1961 through 1966. Adequate last ditch cooling will be provided for the 100-K Areas under Project CGI-844 which is currently in progress. The results of this study provide a basis for future budgeting action and project planning.
