Volatility: Fluorinator Design FV-100, Zr-U Fuel Element Processing Phase

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Volatility Pilot Plant Mark III Fluorinator is a doublechamber type vessel, each chamber 2 1/2 ft by 16 in. outside diameter separated by a 5-in. pipe 15 in. long. ASME flanged and dished heads are used for the chamber tops and conical sections with a 60 deg apex angle for the chamber bottoms. A new furnace designed to maintain the complete lower chamber (molten salt+ freeboard) above melt temperature is to eliminate past experiences of salt solidification on the wall, heads, and in or on the internal process lines. External pipe runs are autoresistance heated to allow melting and drain ... continued below

Description

Volatility Pilot Plant Mark III Fluorinator is a doublechamber type vessel, each chamber 2 1/2 ft by 16 in. outside diameter separated by a 5-in. pipe 15 in. long. ASME flanged and dished heads are used for the chamber tops and conical sections with a 60 deg apex angle for the chamber bottoms. A new furnace designed to maintain the complete lower chamber (molten salt+ freeboard) above melt temperature is to eliminate past experiences of salt solidification on the wall, heads, and in or on the internal process lines. External pipe runs are autoresistance heated to allow melting and drain back of salt plugs. The upper chamber serves as a gas de-entrainment and solids precipitation device to retain most of the entrained salt and condensable fluorides in the 100 to 400 deg C range. (auth)
