Description: This progress report discusses the activities of the P Division for the month of September, 1949. The B and F piles operated at 275 megawatts (MW) and the D pile at 305 MW throughout the month except for cutages listed under Area Activities. A total of 60.22 tons of metal, at an average concentration of 396 megawatt days/ton (MWD/ton) was discharged from the piles during the month. The 105-H Building was accepted from the Construction Division on September 28 with certain exceptions noted under the Operating Experience section of this report. At month end P Division operating personnel are making preparations for activation of the H pile. On September 28 the operation of the 300 Area oxide burning process was reduced from a two shift to a one shift five day operation. This change in schedule was possible as a result of working off the backlog of uranium oxide. The shipment of 200 tons of canned slugs to Building 105-DR for storage was completed on September 9 and the shipment of 250 tons of canned slugs to Building 105-H for the initial loading charge was completed on September 26.
