Evaluation of Materials Performance in a Large-Scale Glass Melter after Two Years of Vitrifying Simulated SRP Defense Waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Large Slurry Fed Melter (LSFM) at the Department of Energy's Savannah River Plant recently completed two years of service and was shut down for evaluation. This paper reviews the melter operating history and describes the condition of the refractories and metal components. The excellent condition of the LSFM verifies the expected performance of the materials of construction and indicates that a two year melter life is achievable in the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF).
