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

An analysis of surface pressures and aerodynamic load distribution over the swept wing of the Douglas D-558-II research airplane at Mach numbers from 0.73 to 1.73

Description: Report presenting the wing-section pressure-distribution and wing-panel load characteristics of the Douglas D-558-II airplane for a range of Mach numbers and airplane normal-force coefficients. At subsonic speeds, the pressure distributions are characterized by a high negative-pressure peak with an abrupt pressure recovery as a result of the leading-edge expansion over the upper surface at moderate angles of attack.

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

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

REACTIVITY IN SRE OF THE BETTIS ALLOYS

Description: The reactivities of several U--Nb-- Zr alloys in the Sodium Reactcr Experiment are compared with that of 2.8% enriched U fuel. The alloys considered have the following compositions: 15% Nb--70% U--15% Zr; 12% Nb--82% U--6% Zr; and 6% Nb--82% U-- 12% Zr. Each alloy is studied at U enrichments of 3, 7, and 11%, and the alloy enrichments necessary to give the same reactivity as the 2.8% enriched U fuel are found by interpolation. (T.F.H.)
