Rear crossheader fitting inspection B, D, and F Reactors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Cavitational flow has been known to exist in-rear crossheader ``Parker`` fittings at B, D, and F Reactors for the last five or six years. Calculations showing initiation of cavitational flow as a result of high flow rates in the present fittings were verified by experimental data in 1954. A study is currently being conducted to determine the required plant modifications to obtain flow increases on the order of fifty percent above existing flows. This study and the results of preliminary tests that show nominal flow increases may be obtained by reaming rear crossheader fittings has focused attention on the condition … continued below

Description

Cavitational flow has been known to exist in-rear crossheader ``Parker`` fittings at B, D, and F Reactors for the last five or six years. Calculations showing initiation of cavitational flow as a result of high flow rates in the present fittings were verified by experimental data in 1954. A study is currently being conducted to determine the required plant modifications to obtain flow increases on the order of fifty percent above existing flows. This study and the results of preliminary tests that show nominal flow increases may be obtained by reaming rear crossheader fittings has focused attention on the condition of existing rear face piping. To obtain an estimate of the effect of cavitation in rear crossheader fittings resulting from past and current operating conditions, twenty one fittings were examined during the period October 6, 1959 to November 30, 1959. This document reports the inspection results.
