Engineering Development of Fluid-Bed Fluoride Volatility Processes: Part 5. Description of a Pilot-Scale Facility for Uranium Dioxide-Plutonium Dioxide Processing Studies

Description: Report describing a pilot plant constructed at Argonne National Laboratory for studying two major process steps for the recovery of uranium and plutonium from spent nuclear fuels of power reactors. A major objective is the demonstration of optimum process conditions for the two steps for synthetic reactor fuel compositions, including those containing mixtures of inactive fission products.

The Koppers Hydrate Process for Saline Water Conversion Experimental and Engineering Studies

Description: Report covering the research and development work on the Koppers Hydrate Process as a means of desalting sea water. The process is a chemical one, in which a hydrating agent, such as propane or dichlorodifluoromethane, and water combine to form insoluble crystals. Most of the work was carried out in bench-scale equipment or laboratory research.

Diffusion Still Analysis

Description: Report describing a diffusion still for desalination of water, which produces pure water at temperatures below the boiling point by diffusion in the presence of air. The principal advantage of the concept is great mechanical simplicity, requiring neither high vapor pressure nor vacuum equipment.

Washing of Brine From Ice Crystals

Description: Report presenting experimental results for the washing of brine from beds of small plastic and glass beads, and from beds of ice particles prepared by partial freezing of brine. The data are analyzed in terms of a longitudinal-dispersion model which describes the blending of water and brine at the moving wash-water "front".

Army Gas-Cooled Reactor Systems program: alternator final design report

Description: The development and testing of a demonstration brushless alternator for the ML-1 mobile nuclear power plant is described. The brushless concept was selected after it became apparent that a conventional power generator could not satisfy the ML-1 weight and size requirements. The demonstration alternator fabricated and tested under this program did not meet all performance specifications; the efficiency was low and the unit could not be operated for significant periods of time without overheating. However, a large body of useful data was accumulated during the extensive development program. Of special interest are data on the rotor and stator design, the cooling requirements and on the distribution of eddy current losses. Analysis of the data indicates that a brushless alternator, only slightly larger and heavier than was specified for the ML-1, could be developed with a modest additional effort.
