A GELATIN-FILTRATION HEADEND FOR FUEL REPROCESSING SOLUTIONS FROM SILICON- CONTAINING ALUMINUM ALLOYS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A laboratory study of a gelatin headend process for feed from silicon- containing aluminum fuels and plant salvage solutions is described. The optimum conditions for the gelatin treatment of fuel solutions were to boil a 0.1 to 0.5N nitric acid solution with 100 milligrams of gelatin per liter for 30 minutes. This treatment improved filtration rates and decreased the surface activity of the filtrate for TBP extraction. A number of possible flowsheets for fuel solutions are presented using gelatin treatment and filtration. An adequate treatment was not found for salvage solutions of unknown composition because a gelatin dosage which was ... continued below

Description

A laboratory study of a gelatin headend process for feed from silicon- containing aluminum fuels and plant salvage solutions is described. The optimum conditions for the gelatin treatment of fuel solutions were to boil a 0.1 to 0.5N nitric acid solution with 100 milligrams of gelatin per liter for 30 minutes. This treatment improved filtration rates and decreased the surface activity of the filtrate for TBP extraction. A number of possible flowsheets for fuel solutions are presented using gelatin treatment and filtration. An adequate treatment was not found for salvage solutions of unknown composition because a gelatin dosage which was satisfactory for all solutions could not be selected. The optimum treatment for a salvage solution which was grossly contaminated with zirconium, soluble and colloidal silica, and dibutyl phosphate was to boil a 1N acid deficient solution with 600 milligrams of gelatin per liter, filter, and use a Hexone extraction system. A silicic colloid in fuel processing solutions was characterized as a surface active material by this study. (auth)
