Conceptual design study on incorporating a 25-ton/day pyrolysis unit into an operating total energy system. Final report

Description: The results of a conceptual design study on incorporating a pyrolysis unit into an existing total energy plant are presented. The objectives of this study were to examine the institutional, technical and economic factors affecting the incorporation of a 25-ton/day pyrolysis unit into the Indian Creek Total Energy Plant. The Indian Creek total energy plant is described. Results of the conceptual design are presented. A survey of the availability of waste materials and a review of health and safety ordinances are included. The technical aspects of the pyrolysis system are discussed, including the results of the review of facilities requirements for the pyrolysis unit, the analysis of necessary system modification, and an estimate of the useful energy contribution by the pyrolysis unit. Results of the life-cycle cost analysis of the pyrolysis unit are presented. The major conclusions are that: there appears to be no institutional or technical barriers to constructing a waste pyrolysis unit at the Indian Creek Total Energy Plant; pyrolysis gas can be consumed in the engines and the boilers by utilizing venturi mixing devices; the engines can consume only 5% of the output of the 25-ton/day pyrolysis unit; Therefore, consumption of pyrolysis gas will be controlled by boiler energy demand patterns; a waste pyrolysis unit is not cost effective at the current natural gas price of $0.90/10/sup 6/ Btu; and pyrolysis is economically attractive at natural gas prices above $3.00/10/sup 6/ Btu.

Thermal conductivity of halite using a pulsed laser

Description: A feasibility study of the experimental determination of thermal conductivities of salts (NaCl) and a steel casing material using a pulsed laser technique are presented. Optically transparent materials such as salt were effectively coated with an opaque layer of aluminum or silver to satisfy test boundary conditions. Thermal conductivities for the three specimens were obtained from the thermal diffusivity, heat capacity and density relationship. Based on measurements from room temperature to 923/sup 0/K, single crystal halite yielded values ranging from 6.5 to 1.5 W/m-K versus 5.5 to 1.2 W/m-K for Avery Island Bed Salt. AISI 106-Grade B steel gave values of 46 to 29 W/m-K. While these measurements may be no better than +- 10 percent, it is possible with appropriate equipment and technique to generate data of engineering quality, +- 5 percent error, provided adequate test specimens can be fabricated. Attributes of this technique include the generation of data very quickly which is more applicable to testing large numbers of specimens relative to steady-state methods. The use of penny-sized specimens can be a problem from the fabrication requirement, especially for friable and anisotropic geological materials. The quality of the data rests on the adherence of the experimental design to the mathematical model.

Study of core chips from the State of California, Well No. 1 in the Salton Sea Geothermal Field using petrographic, x-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy techniques

Description: Rock chips from depths of 1380 to 1478 m from the State of California Well No. 1 in the Salton Sea Geothermal Field were examined using conventional petrographic, x-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Mineral composition, pore configuration and the nature of the fine-grained matrix materials were determined.

Soviet paper on laser target heating, symmetry of irradiation, and two-dimensional effects on compression

Description: Included is a paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Plasma Physics Division of the American Physical Society in San Francisco on November 19, 1976. The paper discusses some theoretical problems of laser target irradiation and compression investigated at the laboratory of quantum radiophysics of Lebedev Physical Institute. Of significant interest was the absorption and reflection of laser radiation in the corona plasma of a laser target. (MOW)

Evaluation of the Kulite semiconductor strain gage, model M(6) EP-120-500W, spotwelded to P-110 pipe material. [Simulated Nevada Test Site conditions]

Description: The Kulite dual-element, semiconductor strain gage, weldable model M(6)-EP-120-500W, was evaluated in laboratory tests under simulated Nevada Test Site conditions. Two gages were installed on P-110 line-of-sight pipe material. Tension was applied to the test samples to 50 percent of yield (about 2000 microstrain). Immediately following, compression was applied to 100 percent of yield (about 6000 microstrain). The Kulite gages were powered by a dual constant current signal conditioner. Measurements obtained with metal foil strain gages served as reference standards for the Kulite strain gage measurements. The output voltages of the Kulite gages were relatively linear from zero to +2000 microstrain and in the subsequent compression to -2500 microstrain. Below -2500 microstrain, the output voltages from the Kulite gages became decidedly nonlinear and also differed significantly from each other. We feel that the gage spotwelds were failing at strains below -2500 microstrain and consequently that data obtained below this level are not reliable enough to calculate pipe forces. The stated gage factor (Kulite factory) of 220 is about 33 percent higher in tension than the measured gage factor and about 15 percent higher in compression. Adhesive-bonded, metal foil strain gages are recommended for reliable pipe force measurements on future Nevada Test Site events. Metal foil gages consistently are linear and reliably measure strains in excess of +-10,000 microstrain.

Operation and control of high density tokamak reactors

Description: The incentive for high density operation of a tokamak reactor was discussed. It is found that high density permits ignition in a relatively small, moderately elongated plasma with a moderate magnetic field strength. Under these conditions, neutron wall loadings approximately 4 MW/m/sup 2/ must be tolerated. The sensitivity analysis with respect to impurity effects shows that impurity control will most likely be necessary to achieve the desired plasma conditions. The charge exchange sputtered impurities are found to have an important effect so that maintaining a low neutral density in the plasma is critical. If it is assumed that neutral beams will be used to heat the plasma to ignition, high energy injection is required (approximately 250 keV) when heating is accompished at full density. A scenario is outlined where the ignition temperature is established at low density and then the fueling rate is increased to attain ignition. This approach may permit beams with energies being developed for use in TFTR to be successfully used to heat a high density device of the type described here to ignition.
