Design Study: Sodium Modular Reactor

Description: This study was undertaken for the USAEC under Contract AT(04-3)-189, Project Agreement No. 6, to investigate desirable features of a sodium cooled, graphite moderated uranium fueled power reactor using the modular concept, and, based on this investigation, evaluate the economic potential of this reactor type.

Graphite burnout, interim report on IP-25-A (PT-105-532-E)

Description: Graphite reacts with such gases as CO{sub 2}, O{sub 2}, or water vapor to form gaseous oxides of carbon. In the case of CO{sub 2}-graphite interaction, the reaction rate is not significant until about 550 C. Water oxidizes graphite, very roughly, three times faster than CO{sub 2}. Air will oxidize graphite appreciably at temperatures below 500 C. Graphite removal from Hanford reactors is very important, since graphite is used both as a structural support and a moderator for neutrons. Griggs has shown that small graphite samples oxidized to 10 per cent weight loss had only about one-half their original compression strength. Hence, the longevity of the reactors depends to a great extent on maintaining a low graphite oxidation rate. A means of monitoring the extent of graphite loss, i. e., the burnout rate, is necessary to establish future reactor operational standards. Presently, weighed samples of reactor grade graphite are placed along the length of an empty process channel in each reactor. Thus, a sample is exposed to the reactor`s ambient conditions of power level, moderator temperature, and gas composition. This program was initiated in the vicinity of June, 1953 by Woodley. This report presents data on graphite burnout obtained from in-reactor experiments authorized under IP-25-A (PT-105-532-E) from August, 1957 to January, 1960. Burnout rates are obtained by a direct measurement of the weight loss of control graphite samples exposed to the reactor atmosphere.

A Device for Continuous Detection of Hydrogen in Sodium

Description: Abstract: A device to detect the presence of hydrogen in sodium has been developed. Such a device, installed in a sodium heated steam generator, would signal the presence of water in the sodium resulting from a leak in the sodium-water barrier.

Thermal Cycling Tests of Porous Uranium

Description: Abstract: It has been proposed that a fuel element containing porous uranium be used for moderately high temperature applications. In an effort to determine the structural integrity of this type of fuel body, thermal cycling tests have been conducted on porous uranium.
