Demonstration of the Tank Farm Washing Process and the DWPF SRAT Cycle with Sludge Batch 3 Simulant and Precipitated Pu/Gd Mixture from H-Canyon Tank 18.3

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Nuclear Materials Management Division (NMMD) has proposed that certain Pu solutions stored in H-Canyon be disposed to H-Tank Farm. These solutions contain significant inventories of plutonium. The Pu/Gd mixture (along with the sludge slurry from Tank 7 and Am/Cm solution) will be processed as a part of Sludge Batch 3. Sludge Batch 3 is the next sludge batch of feed for the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF). In order to prepare the feed for DWPF, the sludge slurry will be washed to approximately 0.55 M Na in the supernate. This report addresses the glove box work with a Sludge ... continued below

This report addresses the glove box work with a Sludge Batch 3 simulant and a Pu/Gd mixture precipitated from H-Canyon Tank 18.3. The main objective of this experimental work was to determine the behavior of the Pu and Gd during the Tank Farm washing process and the SRAT process.
