CHEMICAL DECONTAMINATION OF THE ANL-2 HIGH-PRESSURE WATER LOOP

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The chemical decontamination of the ANL-2 Highpressure Water Loop at the MTR is described. A mixture of sodium hydroxide and potassium permanganate was first applied to oxidize partially and loosen the magnetite corrosion film on the loop surfaces. Next, the system was treated with a solution of Versenol 120 to remove and suspend the loosened oxide film. The third chemical treatment was a mixture of sulfamic acid, HEDTA, hydrazine, and Rodine 80. After the first two chemical treatments a brown residue remained, which was presumed to be manganese dioxide. The third solution completely removed all traces of residue from the ... continued below

Description

The chemical decontamination of the ANL-2 Highpressure Water Loop at the MTR is described. A mixture of sodium hydroxide and potassium permanganate was first applied to oxidize partially and loosen the magnetite corrosion film on the loop surfaces. Next, the system was treated with a solution of Versenol 120 to remove and suspend the loosened oxide film. The third chemical treatment was a mixture of sulfamic acid, HEDTA, hydrazine, and Rodine 80. After the first two chemical treatments a brown residue remained, which was presumed to be manganese dioxide. The third solution completely removed all traces of residue from the first two treatments. After a delay of one MTR fuel cycle (three weeks) due to mechanical difficulties, the loop was operated for approximately 300 hours at 420 deg F and 380 psig with excess hydrogen to passivate the loop surfaces. Approximately 70% of the corrosion film was removed from the loop surfaces as a result of the chemical decontamination. (auth)
