Pilot-Scale Testing of a Rotary Microfilter with Irradiated Filter Disks and Simulated SRS Waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The processing rate of high level radioactive waste treatment processes at the Savannah River Site (SRS) is limited by the flow rate of the solid-liquid separation process (crossflow filtration). If SRS could identify and develop a solid-liquid separation technology with a higher processing rate, they could increase the throughput of these processes and complete treating those waste streams in a shorter time, with a significant reduction in life-cycle cost. Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) personnel identified the rotary microfilter as a technology that could significantly increase filter flux, with improvements of as much as 10X. SRTC is evaluating and developing ... continued below

SRTC is evaluating and developing the rotary microfilter for radioactive service at the SRS. One aspect of this work is evaluating the impact of radiation on the filter unit and filter disks.
