Safety Analysis Report for Packaging (SARP): Models AL-M3 and AL-M6 nuclear packaging (DOE C of C No. USA/5790/BLF and No. USA/5791/BLF)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This revised Safety Analysis Report for Packaging (SARP) satisfies the requirement of the US Department of Energy (DOE) for an updated formal safety analysis of the two insulated drum shipping containers identified as USA/5790/BLF and USA/5791/BLF. The report makes available to all potential users the technical information and limits pertinent to the construction and use of the shipping containers. This SARP includes discussions of structural integrity, thermal resistance, radiation shielding and radiological safety, nuclear criticality safety, and quality control. Complete physical and technical descriptions of the packages are presented. Each package consists of a cylindrical steel inner container centered within ... continued below

Description

This revised Safety Analysis Report for Packaging (SARP) satisfies the requirement of the US Department of Energy (DOE) for an updated formal safety analysis of the two insulated drum shipping containers identified as USA/5790/BLF and USA/5791/BLF. The report makes available to all potential users the technical information and limits pertinent to the construction and use of the shipping containers. This SARP includes discussions of structural integrity, thermal resistance, radiation shielding and radiological safety, nuclear criticality safety, and quality control. Complete physical and technical descriptions of the packages are presented. Each package consists of a cylindrical steel inner container centered within an insulating steel drum assembly. The contents may be any radioactive materials that satisfy the requirements established in this SARP. A shipment of plutonium-238 in the form of a solid oxide is evaluated in this SARP as an example. Design and development considerations, the tests and evaluations required to prove the ability of the containers to withstand normal transportation conditions, and the sequence of four hypothetical accident conditions (free drop, puncture, thermal, and water immersion) are discussed. Tables, graphs, dimensional sketches, photographs, technical references, loading and shipping procedures, Mound Facility experience in using the containers, and copies of the DOE Certificates of Compliance are included.
