Description

Hood Worthington reports that slug testing in autoclaves shows improvement to substantiate a meeting on the initial loading of pile B and production for B.F. Babcock report examining five drafts of Operating Standards for the 100 Area. C.W.J. Wende are considering alternative loading schemes due to the observation that lead dummy slugs at the inlet end of a tube may mushroom when subjected to the stress of discharging. J.A. Wheeler reports on heavy metal content of reclaimed slugs compared to normal slugs. Also, temperature measurements on slugs in 105-B and corrosion rates of heavy metals are given. P.F. Gast reports ... continued below
