HIGH SENSITIVITY NEUTRON ASSAY OF GROUTED SPENT NUCLEAR FUEL SLUDGE AT HANFORD

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The disposal of the North Loadout Pit (NLOP) waste at Hanford will produce 208-liter grouted sludge drums bearing transuranic (TRU) radionuclides and fission products. Discrimination between low level waste (LLW) and TRU waste requires a lower limit of detection (LLD) of less than 100 nCi (3700 Bq) of TRU alpha activity per gram of waste matrix in order to correctly certify the final waste form. Hanford's Waste Receiving and Processing (WRAP) facility operates two identical Imaging Passive Active Neutron (IPAN{trademark}) systems which had previously demonstrated this low detection limit capability for debris waste. These two IPAN{trademark} systems were selected as ... continued below

These two IPAN{trademark} systems were selected as the appropriate technology to assay this challenging waste stream.
