Development status and incentives for the hot die sizing process

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The development status and incentives for the hot the sizing process for reactor production fuels is reviewed and updated and economic justification for the process for four different case studies presented. Based on whether the end bonding step can be eliminated, payout periods of 1.2 to 1.7 years can be realized if the present AlSi process (two-shift, five-day week) is converted to hot die sizing for all reactors. For K-Reactor operation only, Payouts of 1.5 to 2.2 years can be realized by converting to hot the sizing. Should incentives exist for the present six-inch and eight-inch length fuel to longer … continued below

Description

The development status and incentives for the hot the sizing process for reactor production fuels is reviewed and updated and economic justification for the process for four different case studies presented. Based on whether the end bonding step can be eliminated, payout periods of 1.2 to 1.7 years can be realized if the present AlSi process (two-shift, five-day week) is converted to hot die sizing for all reactors. For K-Reactor operation only, Payouts of 1.5 to 2.2 years can be realized by converting to hot the sizing. Should incentives exist for the present six-inch and eight-inch length fuel to longer models (10, 12 inch), costs would be increased in the AlSi process, which-would not be incurred in hot the sizing. This provides additional incentives for hot the sizing and reduces all payout periods by about 0.2 years.
