Sodium Mass Transfer: II, Screening Test Data and Analysis

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In 1959 the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission contracted with the General Electric Company to carry out a Sodium Mass Transfer investigation with the objective of evaluating three prospective steel construction materials for utilization in liquid sodium-cooled reactor systems operated in the temperature range of 600 to 1300 F. Six liquid sodium test loops were designed and built to implement the study of the three selected materials: AISI 316 stainless steel (316SS); 2 1/4 percent Chromium- 1 percent Molybdenum steel (2 1/4 Cr-1Mo), and 5 percent Chromium - 1/2 percent Molybdenum- 1/2 percent Titanium steel (5Cr-1/2Mo-Ti).

This document reports and interprets extensive observations of the metallurgical effects noted after exposure of the materials to liquid sodium. This exposure was made under dynamic conditions in test runs of up to 3000 hours from the initial startup through December 1961.
