CG-717, Transfer Facilities for Redox Non-Boiling Wastes
The Construction Operation has started excavation for pump pits
and pipe trenches at the 241-SX Tank Farm. The domes of tanks
112, 114, and 115 have been exposed and forms built preparatory
to pouring concrete.
P-126 PR Cage Reactivation
A decision has been made to fabricate a replacement plutonium
concentrator of Phase I design in the event that the PR cage
must be reactivated. The assumption is made, with concurrence
of the Finished Products Operation, that the 20 g/l product
of this vessel will be processed in Recuplex. This decision
was reached when a $4,500 estimate was received for design of
a critically safe concentrator to produce the 100 g/l solution
required for normal 234-5 Building operation.
P-127 Extended Backcycle
A work order has been issued to the Construction Engineering
Operation for the design of the six jumpers required to route
the 2 DW partition cycle aqueous waste to the F-2 partition
cycle feed concentrator, as the first phase of an extended
backcycle program as proposed in H-48019.
P-129 "E" Metal Program
A "Plant and Equipment Analysis Report" has been written
recommending preparation of a project proposal to secure
funds for critically safe enriched-metal- dissolvers in the
Redox Operation. A design order has been issued in the
amount of $2,000 for preparation of the proposal. The
report, taken from subject matter in document EW-48491,
forecasts use of "E" metal dissolvers by 1-1-59 at a cost of
$800,000. This time schedule is not adequate to meet pro-
duction schedules. One dissolver will be needed, not later
than July 1, 1958.
I. Reports Issued
