Progress letter No. 11 for January 1, 1960 through January 31, 1960

Description: A stainless steel autoclave for superheated water corrosion test was installed and "conditioned". Tests were begun to investigate the feasibility of densifying slip cast stainless steel by means of liquid phase sintering. Attempts to prepare tubular fuel elements by vacuum forming were resumed. Although thick-walled vacuum formed casting have been sintered on the aluminum mandrels without cracking, this has not yet been accomplished with the think sections of interest.

Progress Report for Period Covering January 15, 1960 - February 15, 1960

Description: Thorium Procedure: As was mentioned in the last report, ammonium nitrate was substituted for ferric nitrate as a salting agent. Also, the acidity of the nitrate solution was reduced from 3.0 molar to 0.5 molar. the revised thorium procedure is described in the report. Radium Procedure: Work has ben initiated on the procedure of Petrow, Nietzel and DeSesa (Winchester Procedure) to determine if the procedure is suitable for very low level concentrations of radium.

Echelle Spectroscopy. Seventeenth Quarterly Progress Report

Description: This is the seventeenth quarterly report on our echelle project, as numbered above. Our work this quarter has to some extent been directed towards the Spectroscopy Symposium held at Argonne National Laboratory on February 15, 16, and 17. This report consists principally of brief abstracts of the two papers given at this meeting. Progress since the last quarterly report included completion of the echelle comparator calibration, and the successful production and photographing of the desired spect… more

The Surface Tension of Aqueous Uranyl Sulfate Solutions Between 20' And 75'C

Description: The surface tension of aqueous uranyl sulfate solutions, ranging in concentration from 0.175 molal to 2.340 molal, has been measured at 20', 30', 45', 60' and 75'C. The surface tension increases continually with increasing temperature, becoming in the most concentrated solutions about six percent greater than that for water at the same temperature.

Utilization of Radiactive Isotpoes in Coal Process Research

Description: "This is the third quarterly report on Task II dealing with Methods Development for Radio-Tracing of Coal Product Hydrocarbons With Tritium. The problem of accurate low-level tritium assay for tagged hydrocarbons has been resolved and attention is now primarily directed at the questions of tritium mobility and radio-chemical purity in tagged tracers."

Decontamination Program Task II. Volume II, Evaluation of Chemical Agents for Nuclear Reactor Decontamination

Description: Abstract: The caustic permanganate-rinse decontamination treatment was investigated. Loop and metallurgical studies were performed to determine optimum operating conditions as well as the metallurgical effects of the treatment. A treatment with 10 percent sodium hydroxide and 5 percent potassium permanganate solution followed by a rinse with a 5 percent ammonium citrate, 2 percent citric acid and 1/2 percent Versene solution was chosen for the decontamination of a stainless steel steam generat… more

Radiochemical Analysis of Crud from the Army Package Power Reactor

Description: Abstract: A study has been made of the radiochemical composition and the specific activity of insoluble corrosion products (crud) removed from the primary system of the APPR-1. This report presents the results of analysis of twelve crud samples collected during the interval from September 3, 1957 to December 1, 1957. The samples were radiochemically analyzed for long-lived gamma emitting nuclides only. Data are presented on the measured values of the specific activity of crud, the ratios of th… more

Evaluation of Kanigen, Electroless Nickel Plating for Steam Side of a Sodium Component Steam Generator

Description: Introduction: This is a final report on the evaluation of Kanigen electroless nickel plating for surfaces in contact with water and steam i a sodium heated AISI Type 316 stainless steel steam generator. The purpose of the coasting was to afford protection from stress corrosion cracking originating on the water-steam side of the unit. It has been concluded that the kanigen coating does not afford adequate protection for the services condition intended. This work was performed as part of the r… more

The Preservation of Fluorescence Standards

Description: Report discussing the practice of using methyl methacrylate as a coating for platinium dishes in fluorescence method of uranium analysis. The experimental procedure described in this report to evaluate this practice indicates that the sample would be sufficiently protected from contamination and would not need to be stored in a desiccator.

Preparation of Samples of 42 Weight Percent U-Al Alloy for Pile Irradiation Tests

Description: Abstract: Processes are described for preparing small samples of 42 wt. % U-Al alloy (uranium enriched with U235) for pile irradiation studies. In the course of this work it was found that the size of the massive Al-U grains remains substantially unaltered during hot rolling.
