Description

A metallic waste form alloy that consists primarily of stainless steel and zirconium is being developed by Argonne National Laboratory to contain metallic waste constituents that are residual from an electrometallurgical treatment process for spent nuclear fuel. Ingots have been cast in an induction furnace in a hot cell using actual, leftover, irradiated, EBR-II cladding hulls treated in an electrorefiner. The as-cast ingots have been sampled using a core-drilling and an injection-casting technique. In turn, generated samples have been characterized using chemical analysis techniques and a scanning electron microscope equipped with energy dispersive and wavelength-dispersive spectrometers. As-cast ingots contain the ... continued below

The as-cast ingots have been sampled using a core-drilling and an injection-casting technique. In turn, generated samples have been characterized using chemical analysis techniques and a scanning electron microscope equipped with energy dispersive and wavelength-dispersive spectrometers. As-cast ingots contain the predicted concentration levels of the various constituents, and most of the phases that develop are analogous to those for alloys generated using non-radioactive surrogates for the various fission products.
