Description: This report is presented in order to provide a satisfactory system of symbols and identifications for process-instrumentation equipment and to promote a uniformity of practice that will simplify and expedite instrumentation work. It is intended that the systems presented here should be capable of designating and identifying the multitude of instrumentation items which are used for control and operation of conventional processes, as well as for specialized work peculiar to ORNL.

Unstable Particles As Targets In Scattering Experiments

Description: A general method is suggested for analyzing the scattering of particle A by particle B, leading to three or more final particles, in order to obtain the cross section for the interaction of A with a particle which is virtually contained in B. Binding complications are absent if a plausible assumption about the location and residues of poles in the S-matrix is accepted. The method is useful for unstable particles from which free targets cannot be made; the special examples of pion and neutron ta… more

Chemical Processing Department monthly report for April 1958

Description: The separations plants operated on schedule, and Pu production exceeded commitment. UO{sub 3} production and shipments were also ahead of schedule. Purex operation under pseudo two-cycle conditions (elimination of HS and 1A columns, co-decontamination cycle concentrator HCP) was successful. Final U stream was 3{times} lower in Pu than ever before; {gamma} activity in recovered HNO{sub 3} was also low. Four of 6 special E metal batches were processed through Redox and analyzed. Boric acid is rem… more

Chemical Processing Department monthly report, October 1958

Description: Output of plutonium from the separations plants Purex, Redox was slightly less than that scheduled; however, year-to-date production exceeds the corresponding commitment. Production of UO{sub 3} met the commitment, and UO{sub 3} shipments conformed to the established shipping schedule. Production of buttons and shapes was slightly less than the commitment as shown in the current Official Forecast. Shipments of buttons conformed to the current Forecast, while large shape shipments were slightly … more

Columbia River flow-time calculations

Description: Re-appraisal of the available data on flow times of the Columbia River between the reactor areas and Pasco was undertaken to permit extrapolation of the flow-time curves to lower river flow rates. Comparisons were made between data collected by the US Corps of Engineers and Regional Monitoring and with the equation for calculation of flow times developed by H.T. Norton. Extrapolation of the Regional Monitoring float study data to a flow of 3 {times} 10{sup 5} gallons per second was accomplished… more

Bulk outlet temperature limits and increased reactor power levels

Description: In a recent report by J.R. Young means of circumventing the present bulk temperature limits are suggested. These have definite merit but do not present an overall picture of the problem. Therefore this bulk temperature limit is reviewed in order to place the problem in its full perspective. A program of action is suggested that should land to either: Revised operating conditions and process piping to obtain higher power levels at the same bulk outlet temperature, or the completion of production… more

DAREX PROCESS: BATCH DISSOLUTION AND CHLORIDE REMOVAL STEPS FOR YANKEE ATOMIC FUEL

Description: In laboratory scale experiments dilution of a Darex dissolver product from the integral dissolution of Yankee Atomic fuel specimens with at least an equal volume of 15.8M HNO/sub 3/, followed by distillation, produced a solvent extraction feed containing less than 50 ppm of chloride. Properly designed chloride stripping and nitric acid rectification columns are capable of conserving acids for recycle to the dissolver and chloride removal still. In initial experiments about 87% of the nitric aci… more

CORROSION BEHAVIOR OF DEFECTED FUEL ELEMENTS WITH U-2 w/o Zr CORE CLAD WITH ZIRCALOY-2

Description: The aqueous corrosion behavior of defected fuel elements having a U-2 wt. % Zr core with Zircaloy-2 cladding has been studied. A standard diffusion heat treatment for 7 hours at 880 C, followed by moderately rapid cooling, was established to overcome the effect of subtle defects in 15-mil Zircaloy cladding. The development of this heat treatment was carried out primarily with small rod specimens, which were also used to obtain data on aurxiliary effects of thw diffusion heat treatment. The heat… more

Corrosion and Creep Behavior of Tantalum in Flowing Sodium

Description: The corrosion behavior of commercial tantalum in high-purity flowing sodium from 700 to 1200 deg F and the effect of sodium exposure on the creep strength of tantalum at 1200 deg F were investigated. The tests were conducted in forced-convection flow loops constructed of Type 315 stainless steel. With continuously gettered sodium systems (probably containing less than 10 ppm oxygen) operating for periods up to 50 days, weight losses sustained by 1200 deg F specimens corresponded to only about 0… more
