Carbon dioxide for pH adjustment 100-K Reactors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report presents the results of a recent analysis to determine if there is a practical method for using carbon dioxide for pH adjustment at the 100-K Reactors. Carbon dioxide could be recovered from the boiler stack gas and introduced into the K Reactor process water. The approximately $240,000 installation cost would be repaid in about one year by the reduction of sulfuric acid costs. The proposed system would consist of a blower, a purification system, and a distribution system for conducting the gas from the boiler house stacks to spargers in the process water clearwells. The blower would draw … continued below

Description

This report presents the results of a recent analysis to determine if there is a practical method for using carbon dioxide for pH adjustment at the 100-K Reactors. Carbon dioxide could be recovered from the boiler stack gas and introduced into the K Reactor process water. The approximately $240,000 installation cost would be repaid in about one year by the reduction of sulfuric acid costs. The proposed system would consist of a blower, a purification system, and a distribution system for conducting the gas from the boiler house stacks to spargers in the process water clearwells. The blower would draw gas from the boiler stacks and then blow it successively through the purification system and the distribution system. The purified gas, consisting primarily of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen, would bubble up through the water in the clearwells, where the carbon dioxide would be absorbed by direct contact with the water. The development work necessary before the use of carbon dioxide can be recommended consists primarily of in-reactor single tube tests followed by a half-reactor test. These tests are necessary to show the effects of carbon dioxide on aluminum corrosion, effluent activity, and reactor hydraulics. The single tube tests already have been started. The half-reactor tests probably will start in CY-1965 if no adverse effects are observed during the single tube tests. Satisfactory completion of the development tests is expected early in CY-1966. The necessary installation work could be started before the end of FY-1966.
