40-MW(e) Prototype High-Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor Research and Development Program. Quarterly Progress Report for the Period Ending June 30, 1962

Description: Research and development progress specifically directed toward the construction of a 40-Mw(e) prototype power plant employing a high-temperature, gas-cooled, graphitemoderated reactor known as the HTGR is reported. Irradiation of element III-B in the in-pile loop continued satisfactorily. The element has generated a total of l36.3 Mw-hr of fission heat. The gross activity in the purge stream increased slightly to about 350 mu C/cm/sup 3/. By taking larger gas samples than were previously taken,… more

Abstract -- A description of low temperature hydriding of zircaloy at Hanford

Description: The two K Reactors at the Hanford Plant of the Atomic Energy Commission were retubed in 1963 with ribless Zircaloy process tubes. These tubes, 1.81 inch OD x 0.037 inch wall, were made by tube reducing methods from extruded blooms and were installed without final pickling or autoclaving. These tubes are used with once-through filtered water with a maximum coolant temperature of approximately 110 C. After approximately two years` service, it was discovered that these tubes were absorbing hydroge… more

Adsorption of Radioactive Gases on Activated Carbon

Description: The purpose of this experiment is to study the quantitative adsorption characteristics of a carbon adsorber bed receiving a radioactive inert gas in a helium stream. An objective of the experiment is to measure the equilibrium transmission of the radio-active gas through a carbon adsorber in order to determine if radio-active decay of the adsorbed gas permits additional adsorption.

ADVANCED PRESSURE VESSEL MATERIALS.

Description: Data on 5Cr - 3Mo - 12Ni alloy, PH13 - 8Mo and Iconel 718 for pressure vessel application are given. The 5Cr - 3Mo - 12Ni posseses characteristics suited to uniform aging of heavy sections. Tensile and toughness properties are good, and structural stability up to 315 deg C is adequate. Weldability with 12Ni - 3Cr - 3Mo filler material is good but 12Ni - 5Cr - 3Mo filler is more efficient. Aging characteristics of PH13 - 8Mo may not be suited to uniform aging of heavy sections. Excellent tensile… more
