Anion Exchange Recovery of Plutonium From Reduction Residues

Description: An anion exchange process was demonstrated for the recovery of Pu from waste produced in the reduction of Pu salts to the metal. Pu in a highiy salted 6M nitric acid solution, derived from the dissolution of slag and crucible waste, was separated from impurities by absorbing the Pu(IV) nitrate complex on the anion exchange resin and subsequentiy eluting with dilute nitric acid. A flowsheet for plant operation is presented. (auth)

Anion Exchange Recovery of Plutonium From Reduction Residues

Description: Technical report. From Abstract: "An anion exchange process was demonstrated for the recovery of plutonium from waste produced in the reduction of plutonium salts to the metal. Plutonium in a highly salted 6M nitric acid solution derived from the dissolution of slag and crucible waste was separated from impurities by absorbing the Pu (IV) nitrate complex on the anion exchange resin and subsequently eluting with nitric acid. A flowsheet for plant operation is presented."

The Catalysis of the Hydrogen-Oxygen Reaction by Aqueous Slurries of Thorium Oxide and Thorium-Uranium Oxide

Description: Aqueous slurries of thorium oxide and thorium oxide containing urarium were investigated for their catalytic activity for the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to form water. Pure thorium oxide. thorium-uranium oxide mixed crystals prepared by calcining coprecipitated oxalates, and thorium oxide with uranium oxide sorbed on the surface were used after calcining at 650, 800, and 1000 deg . The reaction rates were found to be first order with respect to hydrogen pressure and zero order with respect… more

CHANGE OF KEWB REACTOR CORES-EVALUATION OF SIGNIFICANCE WITH REGARD TO ASSOCIATED HAZARDS

Description: The KEWB Facility is described, and an over-all technical evaluation is made of the hazards associated with changing from a spherical to a cylindrical core. The characteristics of the two systems, the operation and emergency procedures, a brief history of the program, a summary of the data obtained, and maximum accident analyses are given. The conclusion is that the core change does not represent an adverse change with respect to associated hazards. (T.R.H.)

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING DIVISION SUMMARY REPORT FOR OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER 1959

Description: Chemical-Metallurgical Processing. A direct-cycle pyrometallurgical fuel-processing plant is being constructed in conjunction with EBR-II. The gamma- irradiation testing of the 175-watt white fluorescent mercury vapor lamp was continued to an integrated exposure of 2 x 10/sup 9/ rad. Irradiation tests of Shell APL grease were completed, and the estimated useful life of this grease in the Air and Argon Cells is 2 and 3 years, respectively. Tests of the three - types of d-c motors used in the ope… more

THE DIFFUSION OF KRYPTON-85 FROM URANIUM DIOXIDE POWDER

Description: The diffusion of Kr/sup 85/ in two UO/sub 2/ powders was studied by performing a series of post-irradiation anneals on the powders. The emanation data were analyzed by considering the effect of sintering as well as the effect of a distribution of particle sizes within the sample. Measurements were made at 900 to 1500 deg C. The time at a temperature was between 8 and 24 hours. The diffusion coefficients for Kr/sup 85/ in the two powders are represented by the equations: D = 2.65 x 10/sup -4/ ex… more

The Drip Casting of Zirconium Metal. Work Completed: March 1951

Description: A drip casting process initiated to obtain zirconium castings uncontaminated by the melting process and to remove volatile impurities from the zirconium feed rod is described. A feed rod of zirconium is held above the mold, and the bottom of the rod is melted rapidly off into a mold to produce the casting. The melting process is carried out under high vacuum, so that very little atmospheric contamination can result, and some removal of volatile impurities is possible. Since no crucible is used … more

EURIPUS-3 AND DAEDALUS--MONTE CARLO DENSITY CODES FOR THE IBM-704

Description: EURIPUS-3 calculates the one-dimensional spatial density of neutrons slowing-down past a given energy in an infinite homogeneous medium consisting of hydrogen and one other isotope with arbitrary mass and energydependent differential-elastic and absorption cross sections. DAEDALUS determines the corresponding spatial distribution of angular integrals of an arbitrary function times the vector flux density. Spatial moments of all density functions are furnished directly. Although scattering angle… more

An Experiment to Measure Effective Delayed Neutron Fractions

Description: >An experimental measurement of the effective delayed neutron fraction ( beta -bar) was made for a clean critical assembly by determining the asymptotic period associated with introduction of a known amount of reactivity. The "known amount" of reactivity was obtained by replacing, uniformly throughout the reactor, a small quantity of U/sup 235/ with an alloy of B/sup 10/ and Hf designed to match the absorption properties of U/sup 235/. The replacement was thus equivalent to a uniform reduction … more
