sUBJECT: AVt vi ty in the HFIR Primary Coolant System after a- Meltdown
of the Fuel in Reactor
TO: W. R. Gall
FROM: H. A. McLain
An estimate was made of the fission product activity which would
result in the HFIR primary coolant system foLLowing a'meltdown
of the fuel element within the reactor. The rare gases and the
halogens appear to be the main contributors to the gamma activity
in the coolant system immediately after the meltdown, and iodine
appears to be the main contributor 24 hours after the meltdown.
