100 Areas water treatment specifications

Description: This memorandum discussed review of the data from tests using alum in the treatment of pile process water, and using activated silica as a coagulant aid during period of low water temperature, which shows that this method should be substituted for the present method of treating pile process water in all 100 Areas. It was recommended that the water treatment procedures and specifications attached to this memorandum be initiated as standard practice in all 100 Areas as soon as it is possible to make the necessary equipment modifications and installations.

Application of Reactor Safeguard Committee Formula

Description: The Reactor Safeguard Committee formula for the allowable minimum distance between a reactor and the public domain is expressed as: r = 0.01{radical}P, where r = radius from reactor in miles, and P = reactor power level in kilowatts. The six plates in this report illustrates the application of this formula for Hanford Works, both for individual reactors and all reactors in an area.

C pile slug rupture detection system

Description: This memorandum discusses experimental determination which was made of the sensitivity and operational characteristics of the modified effluent water beta activity monitor system which is to be utilized at C pile for slug rupture detection. The optimum operating conditions for this system were also determined. A comparison of the performance of the C pile system with that of the existing Hanford type beta system was made to establish the degree of improvement realized through system redesign; this information being of assistance to the Pile Physics slug rupture detector development program. This report discusses the performance of both beta sensitive systems and the parameters upon which improved performance depends. A two ionization-chamber mockup of the C pile system was installed in the near effluent water sample room at H pile and utilized in these studies.

Design and construction history, Aquatic Biology Laboratory: Project C-364, December 31, 1951

Description: The GE Nucleonics Division Staff Department which now is called the Radiological Sciences Department was formerly known as the ``Health Instrument Divisions. A part of this department, presently known as the Biology Section, was formerly identified as the ``Biology Division.`` This project is concerned with a laboratory facility which is being built for the use of the Aquatic Biology Unit of the Biology Section. The Aquatic Biology group was established in 1945 to study the effect of the pile effluent on the Columbia River salmon industry. A hutment was erected to provide space for a laboratory, fish troughs, equipment, offices, and service. Thirteen outside ponds were built. Although minor improvements were subsequently added to the original facility, the expansion of the plant did not keep pace with the expansion in the operating program. This inadequacy gave rise to the project hereafter described.

C-Pile recommended flow -- Pressure characteristic curve and orifice pattern

Description: Final approval of a flow-pressure characteristic curve and orifice pattern for C Pile is desired as soon as possible to allow the completion of orifice assemblies and parallit instrumentation. The presentation of a recommended flow-pressure curve and an orifice pattern has been delayed by a lack of experimental flow data on the C Pile flow system. Discussion with members of the C-431-B working committee and Pile Technology Unit personnel indicated that the use of flows higher than those recommended by the Reactor Unit, in HDC-2327, was desirable on the basis that the costs of supplying more water to C Pile than required by present outlet temperature limits will be small compared to the probable saving that can be made in reduction of corrosion and slug rupture frequency. Using this agreement as well as previous data and the assumption of low enrichment as a basis, a preliminary recommendation of a higher flow curve is presented.

C and D machines functional and life tests: Interim report No. 2, Test project No. 29

Description: This test project is being carried on for the purpose of testing certain machines which are designed to charge and discharge reactor units with process metal while the unit is in operation. Satisfactory charging of process pieces while the reactor now required for charging operations. These presently required shutdowns are costly in terms of production time, and may cause undesirable thermal stresses in the unit as it changes power level. If charging can be accomplished during operation, reactor shutdowns would only be necessary for maintenance or emergency purposes. During the testing of these metal handling machines, problems have arisen involving the behavior of the process pieces as they are charged. Because these problems directly affect the charging operations, they are being closely investigated also. the machines covered by this report are designated as pressurized machines since they contain the same water pressure as the end of the process tube on ;which they are located. In most of the test work covered by this report, the full scale pressurized charging machine was replaced with a small charging cylinder. The charging operation was simplified by this change.
