Heating, ventilating, air conditioning deactivation thermal analysis of the PUREX plant

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Thermal analysis was performed for the proposed PUREX exhaust system after deactivation. The purpose of the analysis was to determine if condensation will occur in a sufficient quantity to plug or damage the filtration components. A heat transfer and fluid flow analysis was performed to evaluate the thermal characteristics of the underground duct system, the deep bed glass fiber (DBGF) filter No. 2, and the HEPA filters in the fourth filter building. The analysis is based on the extreme variations of air temperature, relative humidity, and dew point temperature using fifteen years of Hanford weather data as a basis. The ... continued below

The results will be used to evaluate the need for electric heaters that are proposed for the PUREX canyon exhaust to prevent condensation.
