Review of Drilling Methods and Procedures With Results Obtained

Description: "In this review and critique of many matters, most of them related to a central scheme, namely the outlining of methods and procedures in the Commission, ore-finding technique, new empirical criteria as guides to analyses of grade, ore realization factors, and many other subjects that have a bearing on our field methods used have been treated."

Ground Level Concentrations in the Vicinity of a 185 ft Stack

Description: Field tests were conducted to measure short-period pollutant concentrations at several stack heights during conditions of marked atmospheric instability and low wind speeds. The source was a mechanical smoke generator located at the 185-ft level of a tower.

The Higher Fluorides of Plutonium

Description: A systematic set of thermodynamic data for most of the known compounds of plutonium is presented. From earlier data present, it is now possible to extend the tabulation of data for the compounds of plutonium to include PuF(4), PuF(5), and PuF(6).

Surface to Mass Dependence of Effective Resonance Integrals for Uranium 238 Cylinders

Description: Technical report outlining the determination of the effective resonance integral for U238 as a function of the mass ratio for cylinders of 5/8" to 3" diameter. Also gives a linear approximation of the effective resonance integral with infinite shielding in the form of a function. [From Abstract]

Chemical Processing Department monthly report, March 1959

Description: Production of Pu, UO{sub 3}, and Pu metal exceeded forecasts. The 2nd attempt at Purex to recover Zr-Nb resulted in about 1/3 recovery, contaminated with about 1% of the Ce. Palm losses to Purex U product were eliminated, and the Pu content was reduced 5 to 10{times}. Routing the dissolver rinses into 3WB concentrator resulted into improved rinsing efficiency. Unclarified feed was processed through Purex HA column. In a test for using B in Redox, the B was routed completely to the waste; it was not detectable in product streams beyond the first cycle. Almost 1000 g Palm was purified and converted to oxide. Ferrous ion catalyzed the reduction of Palm VI by hydrazine or semicarbazide. Coordination of E-metal and NPR reprocessing at Redox in multipurpose dissolver was studied. An interim fission product recovery program at Purex will be directed toward low-efficiency collection of Pm {sup 147}. Locations for critical incident alarms were selected. (DLC)

Chemical Processing Department monthly report for October 1959

Description: Pu output from separations plant was less than scheduled, but year-to- date production exceeded commitment by 4%. The Palm recovery run in Purex was the most successful to date. UO{sub 3} production and shipments met schedule. Purex had two pump failures. When Purex 1WW was centrifuged and treated to recover Ce, most of it remained in the centrifugate; only 14% was recovered. The prototype Pu ozonator in Redox performed well. Test runs on an acid precycle flowsheet and a proposed internal recycle scheme for Palm recovery were initiated in Redox. Recuplex had a change in solvent extraction feed preparation, and an installation of a safe-geometry bottom section on the stripping column. Storage of Purex 1WW wastes was discussed in a meeting. Conversion of Rexuplex to a manufacturing facility was completed. Cost estimates were developed for several alternative Palmolive processing schemes. Process flow diagrams were completed for Sulfex decladding of Yankee elements and Zirflex decladding of Dresden elements.

A critical review of alternate methods of Purex solvent treatment

Description: This document is a HAPO report dated September 20, 1957. At the time of this report, there had been many different methods suggested for improving the Purex organic recovery system. Some of these suggestions been tried in the plant and others had not. Information concerning this system and, particularly, methods for improving it were wide spread. At the time of this report was no immediate source of information available on the proposed and investigated methods for improving the Purex solvent recovery system.

Purex waste facility scope design -- 241-AX

Description: It is planned for the Purex plant to be the base load plant and therefore it will not be effected by small changes in production schedules. It is of utmost importance to have adequate waste storage capacities at Purex to handle all conceivable production demands and to permit flexibility in semi-permanent storage of self-boiling wastes without jeopardizing production schedules, and diminishing safety regulations, or reducing operability. The purpose of this report is to present the design scope and the fundamental requirements for a new Purex waste storage tank farm to be designated as 241-AX.
