Dry Blending to Achieve Isotopic Dilution of Highly Enriched Uranium Oxide Materials

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The end of the cold war produced large amounts of excess fissile materials in the United States and Russia. The Department of Energy has initiated numerous activities to focus on identifying material management strategies for disposition of these excess materials. To date, many of these planning strategies have included isotopic dilution of highly enriched uranium as a means of reducing the proliferation and safety risks. Isotopic dilution by dry blending highly enriched uranium with natural and/or depleted uranium has been identified as one non-aqueous method to achieve these risk (proliferation and criticality safety) reductions. This paper reviews the technology of ... continued below

This paper reviews the technology of dry blending as applied to free flowing oxide materials.
