Failure Test of a Double Chambered NaK-Filled Irradiation Capsule

Description: Report describing tests "in which a double chambered irradiation capsule containing NaK (sodium-potassium alloy) in its inner chamber was deliberately perforated to allow NaK (the heat transfer medium) and water to react within the capsule chambers" (p. 2). The report includes descriptions of the materials used in the tests, test procedures, and results.

Darex Process: Processing of Stainless Steel-Containing Reactor Fuels with Dilute Aqua Regia

Description: From abstract: "The Darex process developed for the recovery of uranium from stainless steel-containing reactor fuels consists of three steps: (1) dissolution of the fuel material in dilute aqua regia, (2) removal of chloride from the solution to prevent corrosion of downstream stainless steel process equipment, and (3) adjustment of the nitrate solution to solvent extraction feed conditions."

Static Tests of Corrosion Inhibitors for Aluminum and Carbon Steel

Description: The experiments described in this report were performed for two purposes: (1) to find a chemical, or combination of chemicals, that would be effective for inhibiting corrosion of steel in static portions of the Hanford water systems, and (2) as screening tests to select candidate mixtures for further testing to replace sodium dichromate as the inhibitor of aluminum and steel corrosion in the Hanford single-pass reactor cooling water.

Geophysical Seismic Evaluation Study at Hanford

Description: From introduction: "In June, 1963, a geophysical research program was conducted at Hanford to determine the feasibility and desirability of using seismic methods in geohydrologic studies. Detection and delineation were desired of seven different geological features that in some sites affect the movement of liquid radioactive wastes discharged to the ground."
