Processing of radioactive waste solutions in a vacuum evaporator- crystallizer

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Results of the first 18 months' operation of Hanford's vacuum evaporator- crystallizer are reported. This process reduces the volume of radioactive waste solutions and simultaneously converts the waste to a less mobile salt cake. The evaporator-crystallizer is operating at better than design production rates and has reduced the volume of radioactive wastes by more than 15 million gallons. A process description, plant performance data, mechanical difficulties, and future operating plans are discussed. Also discussed is a computer model of the evaporator-crystallizer process. (auth)
