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.

Fuel element study for Reactor Overbore Program

Description: Recent studies have confirmed that large incentives exist for overboring the reactor process channels approximately 500 mils in the C and five old reactors under the proposed Plant Improvement Program. Conservative estimates of the incentives for overboring indicate a payout period of about two years for the proposed work, an increase in plutonium production of 15--18%, derived from increased conversion ratio and a reduction in plant unit cost. Since sufficient progress has been made in the areas of reactor development to warrant the necessary planning and budgetary action to accomplish the proposed work, a preliminary study has been conducted to determine and assess the technical problems associated with the processing and performance of oversize fuels, to define those areas requiring further development, and to provide cost estimates for the conversion and operation of both offsite uranium fabrication facilities and HAPO fuel manufacturing facilities as required to produce oversize fuel elements. Details of this study are contained in this report.

Protection of Graphite by Impregnation. Quarterly Progress Report No. 3 for September 1-November 30, 1960. Vitro Job 2195

Description: The hypothesis that sample resistivity is the controlling factor in electrokinetic impregnation was substantiated. Experiments show that dense clay- bonded silicon carbide can be impregnated beneath the surface pores whereas only surface pore impregnation is achieved with both dense and porous graphite. The resistivity of the materials differ by a factor of about 1O/sup 10/. Although deep penetration of the substrate by the particles of the coating system is not achieved during deposition, there is evidence of considerable diffusion of the binder-carbide solid solution into the pores of the graphite after sintering. A number of sintered, crack-free, and adherent TaC coatings on ATJ graphite panels were prepared which showed evidence of surface pore penetration. The attainment of satisfactory reproducibility was difficult because of preferential deposition of the binder metal and contamination from erosion of the chrome-manganese steel ball mill. Efforts to prevent contamination by lining the mill with rubber were unsatisfactory. A silicon carbide liner for the mill was ordered and will be received in December. To prevent preferential deposition, precoating of the tantalum carbide particles with nickel by chemical precipitation and electroless nickel plating was investigated. Nickel coatings were obtained by both techniques; however, the chemically precipitated nickel was not adherent when the coated particles were placed in the electrophoretic bath. Good adherence was obtained by electroless plating; but this material, when sintered, cracked during the cooling cycle. Further investigation established that both iron and nickel are required as binders to obtain well-sintered Tar. Work was begun on the preparation of coated rocket nozzle liners for testing at NOL. Graphite nozzles were machined to the WM-D-800-2 configuration, and a cell was designed for obtaiining a uniform electrophoretic deposit. Test coatings were within the required thickness tolerance of plus or minus 0.002 in. The coatings, thus far, have cracked at …

Metallurgy of Zircaloy-2. Part I. The Effects of Fabrication Variables on the Anisotropy of Mechanical Properties

Description: The anisotropy of mechanical propertles of Zircaloy-2 was studied as a function of fabricatlon variables. The variatlon in tensile and impact properties with specimen orientation was taken as the measure of the anisotropy of mechanical properties for each material. A qualitative separatlon of the effects of the fabrication variables on the resulting anisotropy of mechanical properties is made, but it is valid only in the rolling plane of the plate. A contractile strain ratio, a ratio of the nataral contractile strain in the rolling plane to that in the direction normal to the rolling plane (measured on the round tensile specimen after testing), is introduced to aid in the interpretation of the tensile data. A Zircaloy-2 fabrication schedule (consisting of, in succession, ingot breakdown at a temperature of 1800 to 1900 gas-cooled F, major reduction at a temperature of 1800 to 1900 or 1350 to 1450 gas-cooled F, a to 1000 deg F. heat treatment of 1800 to 1850 gas- cooled F for 30 min, followed by either a water-quench or a rapid aircool to below 1200 gas-cooled F, a final reduction of 25 to 40% at l000 gas-cooled F, and an anneal at 1400 to 1425 gas-cooled F for 30 min) was found to produce a much more nearly isotropic material than any of the schedules investigated. This material is anisotropic in strain behavior and tensile properties in comparison to the common cubic materials. The elimination of the intermediate to 1000 deg F. heat treatment from the fabrication schedule resulted in the production of a material with tensile properties for all directions in the plane of rolling essentially the same, but which allowed little cortractile strain to occur in the thickness direction of the plate. This indicated that a high degree of three-dimensional anisotropy existed in the material. The …
