Single tube meltdown incident

Description

In connection with design of rear face fittings for the plant-expansion study currently being conducted we have been asked to determine if rear face pressurization is required for safety reasons and if so, how much. Pressurization of the rear face piping would be used to provide sufficient reverse flow to prevent process tube burnout in the event of complete loss of coolant supply to a single tube by virtus of a front connector failure. Consideration of the effectiveness of rear face pressurization, however, requires a more general look at the problem of single tube meltdown than that provided by considering ... continued below
