Aeorsol Characterization from a Simulated HCDA

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Environmental conditions simulating the HCDA on a reduced scale provided the following information: Aerosols resulting from the condensation of gaseous constituents without sodium generally comprise small, spherical particles (diameter 0.01 to 0.25 um) and branched chain-like structures. Aerosols resulting from the condensation of gaseous constituents with sodium generally comprise spherical, small (diameter 0.01 to 0.50 um) particles, with some branched chain-like structures and some agglomerating particles. Electron diffraction analyses identified actinide dioxides, the constituents of stainless steel, an oxide of sodium (Na2O), sodium uranates (Na3UO4 and Na4UO5), and a sodium plutonate compound (Na4PuO5). Initial solubility studies indicated that 12.1% of ... continued below

Initial solubility studies indicated that 12.1% of the plutonium-239 dissolved in distilled water when a mixed-oxide (Pu, U) stainless steel pellet was vaporized with sodium. Reaction products are controlled kinetically during cooling rather than by equilibrium thermodynamics.
