RM line equipment problems associated with a proposed increase in batch size

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The effect made on the RM (Remote Mechanical) Line equipment by an increase in the plant batch size from ca. 300 grams to ca. 375 grams has been studied. Using the process as determined by Production Test 234-3, the volumes for a 300 gram batch and a 375 gram batch are as follows, respectively: volume of plutonium peroxide (alcohol washed, filtered)--1,275 cc., 1,593 cc.; volume of plutonium tetrafluoride (as produced)--617.7 cc., 772 cc.; and volume of reduction charge (tamped)--511 cc., 638 cc. The difficulties encountered with 375 gram batches are discussed.
