Adsorption of Xenon in an Activated Charcoal Column

Description: Performance characteristics of two activated charcoal columns at room temperature in separating fission-product xenon from an air stream were investigated by installing each column in the exhaust from an enclosure in which irradiated slugs were dissolved. Breakthrough curves are presented and the variation in xenon concentration within the columns is examined. Theoretical treatments of adsorption columns in the literature are found to agree well with the experimental data. Performance of the colunms is evaluated in terms of concentration factor'' and number of effective theoretical plates. (auth)

An Alpha Survey Radiac for Field Use

Description: Abstract: An alpha survey radiac employing a photomultiplier tube and scintillation detector has been developed. The instrument utilizes transistor circuitry and operates from two standard flashlight batteries. Four linear ranges are provided with full scale indication on the highest range corresponding to 10,000 g /m2 Pu2 39. The instrument was designed with .a separable probe and a telescoping extension for easier ground monitoring. A thorium metal source is attached to the instrument housing for checking instrument calibration in the field. The device conforms satisfactorily to the military requirements for altitude, humidity, vibration, shock, and storage. The operational battery life is in excess of 40 hours. Instrument error at low temperatures slightly exceeds the 20% accuracy requirement; however, adequate measurements are readily made by using the thorium check source to provide a check point. Instrument response to low energy X-rays is excessive. However, tests indicate that a simple lead filter will eliminate this difficulty.

Analysis of 100-K emergency water requirements after CGI-844 pump failure

Description: The demand plot has a 5-set, modified pump decay curve; it shows that 20,000 gpm emergency flow would be required within 80 seconds of complete pump power failure. Bases for the demand curve are constant bulk inlet temperature of 2 C, constant bulk outlet temperature of 95 C, K-3 I&E fuel elements, and initial reactor flow of 188,000 gpm.

Artificial cooling of the Columbia River by dam regulation: Part 1

Description: In early July 1958, it appeared that Columbia River temperatures at HAPO would be near 24--50{degree}C by the end of August. River temperatures were averaging 40 to 50{degree}C above 1957 figures and were 3{degree} to 4{degree} above the ten year highs. It seemed desirable to examine the problem to determine if any corrective measure could be taken, since it was apparent that production losses were imminent. The large storage of cold water behind Grand Coulee Dam, normally untapped, was a source of possible relief. A plan for use was proposed for the peak high temperature period and agreed to by the Bureau of Reclamation.

Artificial cooling of the Columbia River by dam regulation. Part 3

Description: The temperatures of the Columbia River was reduced 1 to 30 Centigrade with beneficial effects at HAPO. It is reasonable to expect that future benefits may be possible. It is desirable that the temperature of the river be controlled each year to the maximum extent possible. Instrumentation improvements requested to effect optimum savings. Records of river temperatures and flows should continue to be maintained by IPD as a necessary part of temperature optimization. Where possible, the coincident use of the river cooling technique should be made for the benefit of anadromous fish.

Ax-1, a Computing Program for Coupled Neutronics-Hydrodynamics Calculations on the Ibm-704

Description: The presentation includes a very general outline of the program, a semi- detailed flow diagram which emphasizes the physics and control aspects of the calculation, and then a detailed flow diagram and listing of the program (which is written in Fortran). Explanatory notes accompany thc diagrams. Following the notes on the program, master lists detailing thc roles of the sense switches, sense lights, pauses, and stops are presented. The operating instructions are then given, followed by a sample problem, including detailed information on input data. The theoretical discussion has been kept primarily in the appendices, and is generally in outline form with references, rather than in full exposition. (auth)

Blackness Theory and Coefficients for Slab Geometry

Description: ''Blackaess theory'' is described as a class of procedures for matching a high order transport approximation in one region to a low order approximation in a second region. The matching conditions are presented as a generalization of the Marshak boundary conditions. The blackness coefficients necessary in setting up the conditions are defined and tables are given for slab geomrtry. A method which allows all regions to be treated by means of the blackness coefficients is developed and applied to two region cells. Numerical results are compared with other approximations in situations typical of those encountered in resonance capture and thermal utilization calculations. (auth)

Braze Alloys v.s. Atmospheres : Final Report Project 1325

Description: Summary. At the time this project was initiated, all brazing had been confined to small retorts of ten cubic feet capacity or less. Larger assemblies were scheduled which required retorts of over 100 cubic feet capacity. Hydrogen atmospheres had given the best results, however, there was considerable reluctance to use hydrogen in these large retorts from a safety standpoint. It was thought that thru the use of PMC 2252, an argon - 2 1/2% hydrogen gas atmosphere which in non-explosive, sufficient cleaning action might be attoined without the inherent hazards encountered with hydrogen. An investigation of the argon - 2 1/2% hydrogen gas as a brazing atomosphoer

Braze Ring Mold for Sintering & Casting

Description: Technical report of an investigation to determine a suitable material for sintering and casting of braze rings. Braze rings afford an excellent means of preplacing braze alloy on tube to head joints of radiators, heat exchangers, and similar applications. A cast ring is especially desirable because of its increased strength. Previous efforts at casting had used welding grade carbon blocks with the desired ring cavities machined into their surface. Conclusion: Stackpole grade 331 electro-graphite provided the best results of the materials investigation. It is hard and more readily machinable with conventional tools than other grades. Carbon, in general, proved to be more satisfactory especially due its ease and speed of fabrication.
