14-Inch Swing Check Valve Test

Description: The check valve for the Hallam Power Reactor uses a knife-edge bearing for the flapper in place of the usual journal-type bearing. Mechanical cycling in sodium at 600 deg F was used to check operation of this bearing. A total of 309 mechanical cycles was completed with no apparent malfunctioning of the valve. Measured leskage rates were 0.46 gpm at 0.93 psig, 0.73 gpm at 3.4 psig. and 0.32 gpm at 5.9 psig. (M.C.G.)

100-K Area electrical power system load and voltage study for project CG-775. Revision

Description: The proposed increased water capacity for 100-K plants will increase the electrical load to be supplied. The load study showed that the capacity of the existing 13.8 kV system is adequate to carry the increased loads proposed for Project CG-775, while for the 5 kV system, an expanded power system is proposed. Likewise, the voltage regulation on the kV system bus will be excessive, and voltage regulators should be added.

Anion Exchange Recovery of Plutonium From Reduction Residues

Description: Technical report. From Abstract: "An anion exchange process was demonstrated for the recovery of plutonium from waste produced in the reduction of plutonium salts to the metal. Plutonium in a highly salted 6M nitric acid solution derived from the dissolution of slag and crucible waste was separated from impurities by absorbing the Pu (IV) nitrate complex on the anion exchange resin and subsequently eluting with nitric acid. A flowsheet for plant operation is presented."

Anion Exchange Recovery of Plutonium From Reduction Residues

Description: An anion exchange process was demonstrated for the recovery of Pu from waste produced in the reduction of Pu salts to the metal. Pu in a highiy salted 6M nitric acid solution, derived from the dissolution of slag and crucible waste, was separated from impurities by absorbing the Pu(IV) nitrate complex on the anion exchange resin and subsequentiy eluting with dilute nitric acid. A flowsheet for plant operation is presented. (auth)

[Basement television set]

Description: Photograph of a basement television set. The set is enclosed by fake walls and above these signs for other shows, curtains, and lights are visible. There is a pole in the center of the room and to the right of this is a table with a fan and a lamp on it and to the right of the table is a bed that is pushed in a corner against the wall. The bed has a dark blanket messily placed on top of it and the wall that it is against is painted to look like wood paneling. There are three items of clothing hanging on the walls and there is a coat draped on the banister of the stairs that are in the back of the room. A fur coat is draped over the back of wicker rocking chair on the right side of the room. The wall behind the stairs is painted to look like exposed brick and there are rectangles of a stone pattern on two of the walls. There are two stools placed on the left side of the room and a stage light that is pointed at these stools is visible in the bottom left corner of the image.

Calculation of Temperature Rise in Deeply Buried Radioactive Cylinders

Description: Temperatures were calculated relative to the storage of radioactive solid waste as a function of time and radial distance for radioactive solid cylinders in infinite solid media of "average soil," "average rock," and salt. A resistance at the cylinder--infinite medium boundary was included in the form of an air space. For the range of parameters used and withia the practical limits of accuracy, the maximum temperature rise increased linearly with the heat generation rate. The fission product spectrum was not significant in the determination of the maximum temperature rise. Under the pessimistic storage conditions assumed, the storage of cylinders of a practical size appears feasible without excessive temperature rise. A maximum temperature rise of 1000 deg F would be produced with an initial heat generation rate of 1300 to 1600 Btu/hr-ft/ sup 3/ for cylinders with a 5-in. radius, with 350 to 450 Btu/hr-ft/sup 3/ for a 10-in. radius, and with 175 to 210 Btu/hr-ft/sup 3/ for a 15-in. radius, assuming a thermal conductivity of the radioactive cylinder of 0. 1 Btu/hr-ft- deg F.
