Richland O2 R and D Program: Semiannual report summary

Description: The complete semiannual R and D report consists of this summary and two companion reports, one from DUN which covers reactors and another from ARHCO which covers separations. These companion reports are listed in the set of references in the back of this summary. This semiannual report covers progress in R and D during the first half of FY 1970. Development work on the Basic Production and Product Flexibility Programs has been consistent with funding levels. Increased emphasis has been placed on N Reactor operational problems as well as on assessing the K reactor inlet cooling piping integrity and zirconium hydriding problems. Work has been in progress to improve the Purex plant extraction performance by in-plant testing of the Zirflex Tonic effect. Developmental work was under way to establish either enriched uranium or nondefense plutonium (or both) as a reactor fuel and to provide further technology for the production of high-purity plutonium-238. Activities on the Environmental and Regulatory Technology Program are engaged in developing technology to assure safe operation of the Hanford project facilities. Major emphasis was placed on the study of metal-water (irradiated N fuels) reactions to simulate loss of coolant conditions. Increased emphasis has been placed on the Waste Management Program with intent to develop technology for a substantial reduction in releases of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste to the environment. Emphasis has been maintained on the development program for purifying and encapsulating fission-product strontium and cesium. Efforts to reduce the salt content of Purex wastes have been increased because of the projected waste management cost savings and concomitant improved strontium recovery.

Development of high energy polymers systems: 6th monthly status report

Description: The major objective of the current program is the preparation of high energy hydroxyl-terminated polyester prepolymers from combinations of energetic diols and dicarboxylic acid chlorides. The initial work was based on the reactions of 4,4-dinitropimeloyl chloride (DNPCl) with 2,2,8,8-tetranitro-4,6-dioxa-1,9-nonanediol (DINOL) and 3(dinitrofluoro- ethoxy)-1,2-propanediol (REX-18). In an effort to develop a smooth and rapid polyester polymerization method, reactions between DNPCl and both DINOL and REX-18 have been carried out in THF containing pyridine. It was expected that the pyridine would act as an HCl acceptor, permitting room temperature polymerizations. This was indeed shown to be the case. In fact, when the glycol and DNPCl were dissolved in THF and pyridine added rapidly, a very exothermic reaction took place, with copious quantities of pyridine hydrochloride being precipitated. Slow addition of pyridine to the reaction mixture also resulted in an exotherm. In both cases, brown polymers were produced and they were very difficult to work-up. The next series of polymerizations will be carried out at 0{degrees}C in an effort to control the polymerizations more carefully and avoid color formation. The diacid chloride of 2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethoxyfumaric acid has apparently been synthesized. Reactions of the acid with thionyl chloride at 50-60{degrees} for several days followed by a one-hour reflux produced a white solid. It was filtered, washed with hexane and dried in a vacuum dessicator over KOH. The powder melted at 104-106{degrees}. After it is recrystallized, it will be submitted for elemental analyses. Should it prove to be the diacid chloride, it will be reacted with DINOL and REX-18.

Richland 02 R&D Program annual report summary

Description: This document provides, by program, consolidated abstracts of two detailed annual R&D reports which individually cover separations (Atlantic Richfield Hanford Company), and reactors (Douglas United Nuclear, Inc.). Work performed by the Battelle Northwest Laboratory is included with and forms part of the basis or work described in the reports for separations or reactors. The complete annual report consists of this document and the two detailed reports. It is based on the objectives and milestones as listed in the Summary Document for FY 1968, in this summary, and the two contractor reports. The pattern of missions shown on previous semiannual and annual reports have been consolidated into four programs, Under these headings are the subitems recognizable as titles of the former missions: Basic Production; Product Flexibility; Tritium, (Coproduct); Transplutonium; Plutonium-238; Other Isotopes; Enriched Fuels (Oralloy); Target Space Enhancement; Waste Management Environmental, Safety and Regulatory Technology; Nuclear Safety; Columbia River; Radionuclides in the Soil. Estimated expenditures for fiscal years 1969--1971 are shown.

The nuclear criticality safety aspects of plutonium-238

Description: Plutonium-238 is an important heat producing isotope which is being used in increasing amounts as fuel in isotopic power generators for space, terrestrial, and oceanographic applications. Only within the past few years has the quantity of plutonium-238 become large enough to be considered as a potential nuclear criticality hazard. In order to insure nuclear criticality safety in the storage, processing and assembly of devices containing plutonium-238, a program has been established at Mound Laboratory to investigate the nuclear criticality properties of this isotope. This paper will summarize what is presently known about the criticality behavior of plutonium-238, what are some of the criticality controls used as Mound Laboratory for processing plutonium-238, and what measurements are needed in order to establish a Nuclear Safety Guide for Plutonium-238.

Formulation facility. Quarterly report, April--June, 1969

Description: Two 250-pound batches of LX-09 were made for BAECP for special studies. Twenty Micronizer runs were made to ascertain the effects of various fluids and wetting gents upon the stability of high surface area PETN and to establish the limits within which repeatability can be expected. One sample, after being treated with the wetting agent dodecyl sodium sulfate, stabilized at 7,400 cm{sup 2}/gm after the 300-hour bake at 100 C. A study was begun to determine the effects of deaeration upon the rheological and firing properties of Extex. Rheological data indicate that deaeration has little effect on extrudability. Firing data are currently being obtained.

Explosive performance. Quarterly report, July--September, 1969

Description: This project is for experimentally determining the detonation pressure, etc., of explosives. The detonation pressure of several sizes of PBX 9404 charges was determined using the aquarium technique. Pressure data (from the larger shots) were generally in good agreement with the quoted values for PBX 9404 in these geometries. The small unconfined charge pressure values were consistently about 6% below the accepted 375 kbar value. Experimental shock velocity and computed pressure data are reported.

Thermal properties and chemical reactivity. [Quarterly report], October--December 1969

Description: (Explosives are studied.) Impurities in FEFO and relatively pure FEFO fractions are being obtained by preparative gas chromatography. Use of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry to identify the impurities in FEFO was not successful. Gas chromatography analysis of gas samples taken from the coupon test are reported. Analysis from the third compression type coupon test is reported. The LX-09 lost some of its mechanical strength and was a dark purple. Some of the problems of measuring sample temperature in the high pressure DTA are discussed. DTA thermograms at ambient and elevated pressures are reported for FEFO, nitromethane, Na{sub 3}PO{sub 4}{center_dot}10 H{sub 2}O, and NH{sub 4}H{sub 2}PO{sub 4}.
