SUMMARY OF HRT RUN 25

Description: Run 25 was the final period of power operational of the HRT. The reactor was operated for periods of 62, 8, 52, and 80 hours at 5 Mw with no outward indication of fuel and core and blanket average temperatures of 270 and 230 deg C, respectively. The uranium concentration in the was 1.7 to 2.0 g U/kg D/sub 2/O. Longer periods of operation were prevented by mechanical difficulties, notably with the fuel feed pump. While the reactor was subcritical after the last of the above runs, the upper patch in the core tank wall became dislodged, allowing greater core-to-blanket mixing. The resultant blanket uranium concentration was 2.9 g U/kg D/sub 2/O. The reactor was subsequently operated at April 28, 1961. The experiment was operated at high temperature for a total of 10,866 hours. The system was critical for a total of 8,841 hours and produced 16,295 Mwhours of power. The fuel, heavy water, and some corrosion specimens were recovered, and the reactor was stored in an assembled state. (auth)

Primary Plant Self-Actuated Relief Valve Opertion. Core I, Seed 3. Test Evaluation. Section 1

Description: Tests were carried out on the self-actuated reactor relief valves and the self-actuated pressurizer steam relief valves in order to insure their reliable operation. The valves operated properly, and the final set pressures were all within the specified limits. (D.L.C.)

EXPERIMENTAL BERYLLIUM OXIDE REACTOR PROGRAM. Quarterly Progress Report for the Period, January 1 through March 31, 1962

Description: Progress made in the development of the Experimental Beryllium Oxide Reactor (EBOR) is reported. The objective of the EBOR program is to develop a gas-cooled, beryllium oxide-moderated reactor which can be used in conjunction with a closed-cycle gas turbine or a steam cycle for a small land-based or a maritime power plant. Progress is reported on reactor development, reactor physics, and materials development. (N.W.R.)
