Description: Maximum HRT dome wall temperatures for reactor powers up to 10 Mw were calculated for both an insulated amd uninsulated dome. Temperatures exceeding 315 deg C in the fuel solution flowing through the HRT dome section can cause phase separation which results in excessive corrosion rates. The results, based on very conservative assumptions, inticated wall temperatures exceeding 315 deg C could occur in the insulated dome when operating the reactor at 10 Mw. Using the same conservative assumptions, the analysis of the uninsulated dome indicated wall and bellows temperatures below 300 deg C. (auth)
