Third Safety Considerations

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The present liquid third safety is considered undesirable for the piles at their present power levels. Any increase in power level and graphite temperature makes the need for an alternative third safety increasingly imperative. The use of the third safety is envisioned under conditions where the supply of cooling water to an operating pile is interrupted and concurrently the safety rods full to enter the pile because of slight shifting of the top shield or larger shifting of the winches, relative to the pile proper. Under these conditions, undesirable properties of a liquid third safety are present and are discussed ... continued below
