Absorption of Organic Acids on Thoria

Description: The adsorption of acetic and oleic acids on the surface of thoria was studied by means of infrared spectroscopy. An infrared analysis of the adsorbates before and after adsorption using differential double bean methods indicated that the adsorption of organic acids on thoria surfaces occurs by an esterification reaction between the organic acid and the hydroxylated thoria surface. Ammonia vapor will not adsorb on thoria, indicated the basic character of the hydroxylated surface.

Attempted Modification of Susceptibility of Tumors to X-Radiation : Final Report for August 1 1957 to August 31, 1959

Description: Attempts to secure a high degree of synchronization of cell division of the Krebs mouse ascites carcinoma, by combined use of aminopterin and citrovorum factor, and by use of colchicine and N-acetyl colchinol, were unsuccessful. In the course of the work, a new method for securing smears of ascites tumor cells was out, which we believe will be found useful

Corrosion of INOR-8 and Inconel Dissolver Components of the Fluoride-Volatility Process

Description: The corrosion of INOR-8 and Inconel dissolver components used in the fluoride volatility process for the dissolution of zirconium with anhydrous HF in molten salts was investigated. Ten dissolution runs were made using simulated subassemblies formed from Zircoloy-2. The dissolver and components were made from INOR-8. Both the dissolver vessel and draft tube were examined several times during the series of runs. The solids which formed at different areas in the system were also analyzed. The res… more

Organic Coolant Reclamation Annual Report : December 15, 1958 through December 14, 1959

Description: Potential methods have been examined for the reclamation of high boiler arising from the degradation of polyphenol materials in use as reactor coolants and moderators. To define the chemistry of potential reclamation processes, model polyphenol compounds were used. These include biphenyl, o, m and p-terphenyl, and p-quaterphenyl. Emphasis has been on hydrocracking, redistribution (reaction with benzene), and partial reduction. Preliminary study has been made of the application these techniques … more

Hazards Analysis of the Organic Moderated Reactor Experiment

Description: Introduction: The description of the Organic Moderated Reactor Experiment, (OMRE), its location, its safety system, and operative procedures have been previously detailed. The present report, although dealing with the subject of OMRE safety, has the more detailed intent of (1) determining the behavior of the OMRE under extremely unlikely sets of conditions; and (2) providing additional design information in the areas of reactivity coefficients, burnout heat flux, and reactor control.

Studies of Nuclear Debris in Precipitation : Second Quarterly Progress Report

Description: A sequential method is described for the determination of strontium- 89, strontium-90, barium-140, and tungsten185 in rain water samples. A comparison is made of data on radioactivity in individual rain samples and in monthly pot samples. Data are included on the total strontiuro-90 fall-out collected in steep walled stainless steel pots during the period. Results are compared with cumulative data for 1958 end 1959. (C.H.)

Control Rod Positions for Criticality. Section I. 5032-EFPN. Eigth Performance. Core I, Seed 1. Test Results DL-S-149, T-550130

Description: The purpose of the test was to determine critical bank heights and bank worths for various rod configurations at ambient temperatures. The critical rod bank position and bank worths for four different control rod bank rod configuration were determined after 5032 EFPH's of operation. The value were corrected to a reactor coolant temperature of 145 F and a pressure of 400 psig. The bank worths were corrected to 145 F so that the results of the performance could be compared with the results of pre… more

Nuclear Instrumentation Operation During Plant Operation. Section I. First Performance. Core I, Seed 1. Test Results DL-S-309, RNI-41

Description: The purpose of the test was to evaluate the operation of the Nuclear Instrumentation Power Range Amplifier during start up. While the station was operating at a gross load of 16.5 megawatts, a variation of 0, 8.5, 2.7 and 4.4 existed between the compensated ion chamber currents (CIC) and the test currents for channels A, B, C and D respectively. The off site modifications to channel C power range amplifier did not cause the ion chamber current and test current to be the same at 16.5 megawatts g… more

Examination of Components for Crud and Corrosion. Section I. Second Performance. Core I, Seed 1. Test Results DL-S-155, T-612080

Description: The purpose of the test was to observe the extent and location of corrosion, crud deposits and defects in components of the primary fluid system and its auxiliaries. This observation will allow an estimate to be made of the future behavior of the affected parts. The test also provides for obtaining corrosion products and crud samples for analysis as necessary for planning remedial actions. This test was limited to the 1D Main Coolant Pump which failed November 3, 1958. The pump failed after 223… more

Main Coolant Pump Performance Test. Section I. First Performance. Core I, Seed 1. Test Results DL-S-290, T-641326

Description: The purpose of the test was to obtain performance data for the main coolant pumps on fast and slow speed at various coolant temperatures. The 1A, 1B and 1C pump performances on both fast and slow speed were approximately as shown in the manufacture's predicted performance curve. The 1D pump performance was below the manufacturer's predicted flow efficiency, line current and hydraulic horsepower on both fast and slow speeds.

Equilibrium Extraction Characteristics of Alkyl Amines and Nuclear Fuels Metals in Nitrate Systems. Progress Report No. V for the Period July 1 - September 30, 1959

Description: Extraction of HNO3 by triaryl amine was studied by equilibrating equal volumes of aqueous and organic phases at 25C. At HNO3 concentrations of 2 to 10 N the acid in the organic phase in excess of that equivalent in the amine concentration was proportional to the concentration of HNO3 in the equilibrated aqueous phase. other workers report similar results with nitric acid and tri-n-octyl amine in benzene. Zirconium extractions carried out at 10g Zr/1 with 0.35 M TLA nitrate in toluene showed a f… more

The Determination of Decontamination Factors for Radioisotopes Through Lithium Hydroxide Resin. Section I. Second Performance. Core I, Seed 1. Test Results DL-S-277-S, RNI-22

Description: The purpose of the test was to obtain data on the decontamination factors for Cesium-136, Cesium-137, Strontium-92, one hour gross iodine and Iodine-131. This data will be used to determinate efficiency of lithium hydroxide resin for removing radioactive cations and anions. The denomination factors for a particular demineralizer using lithium hydroxide resign were found to vary for different radioisotopes. This variation was from 2.3 for Cesium136 to 77,000 for gross iodine.
