12" SODIUM FLOW CONTROLLER. PERMANENT MAGNET COUPLING. MAGNETIC CALCULATION MANUFACTURE AND TEST RESULTS

Description: In order to retain the hermetic feature of the sodium flow controller, magnetic flux linkage of a permanent magnet coupling is used to transmit the torque produced by the operator through the pressure wall. Magnetic calculations, manufacture, and testing of this magnet coupling are described. (M.C.G.)

100-C water plant

Description: System curves for each portion of the C Area Water Plant were obtained from referenced work and are presented in figures. Field test data, corroborating the calculated curves, are presented as singular points on the same graphs. Present maxima capacity of the C Area Filter Plant was 121,000 gpm with 118,000 gpm available for use as primary reactor coolant. Modifications to the filter effluent piping would increase this available flow to about 180,000 gpm. Of the 118,000 gpm available for C Reactor use, 10,000 to 12,000 gpm was demanded by B Area through the 183 BC intertie. The maximum flow that the intertie line could handle, without reducing the filter capacity of the C Area filters, is about 21,000 gpm.

1A HEAT EXCHANGER LEAK TEST. CORE I, SEED 2. Test Evaluation. Section 2

Description: An investigation was conducted to determine which tubes of the 1A loop heat exchanger are leaking. Air pressure and probing tests are inconclusive and cannot be used to verify chemical sampling. (J.R.D.)

1B HEAT EXCHANGER LEAK TEST. CORE I, SEED 1. Test Results

Description: Descriptions are given of various procedures used in determining leaks in the tubes of the 1B heat exchanger. Air pressurization tests determined leakage and leak rate of nine tubes. The leak-location-detector-probe method was found promising for locating defects along the length of the tube. Results of the probalog, dye-penetrant, and ultrasonic tests proved inconclusive in determining leak locations. (B.O.G.)

ACCEPTOR DOPANTS FOR LEAD TELLURIDE

Description: Alternative P-type dopants such as, Th, P, and As were studied. Ingots were grown from a melt containing one at.% dopant and their electrical properties evaluated. Also, sintered pellets of PbTe were doped by exposure at high temperature to gaseous dopants. In most cases, the doping concentrations obtained were insufficient for SNAP 10A requirements. In the case of As, however, doping of Te-rich PbTe, the desired heavy doping was obtained. These preliminary studies suggest that dopants other than Na might be suitable for SNAP 10A requirements.

Activity Build-Up Control by High pH Coolant. A Literature Survey

Description: A survey was made of unclassified literature dealing with the control of activity build-up in pressurized water reactors by high-pH coolants. Survey results indicate that a high-pH coolant is desirable for control of induced radioactivity build-up in pressurized water reactors containing significant amounts of stainless steel and that no significant hazards are introduced by adoption of a high-pH coolant. Lithium hydroxide was found to be the most acceptable agent for coolant pH control. Strong-base-form mixed-bed resin is effective in maintaining both coolant pH and coolant purity. (auth)

Adsorption of Krypton and Xenon by Various Materials

Description: The adsorptive capacities of various inorganic adsorbents and activated charcoals for krypton and xenon were determined. Columbia-G activated charcoal had the highest capacity for both krypton and xenon at pressures from 0.01 to 125 mm Hg and temperaturens from 2 to 85 deg C. If a value of 1 is assigned to the capacity of this charcoal at 28 deg C for krypton, other charcoals range from 0.63 to 0.84, molecular sieves (except 4A) from 0.11 to 0.20, and some silica genls from 0.05 to 0.07. Various othenr adsorbennts, including one variety of silica gel and molecular sieve 4A, range from 0.005 to 0.032. Molecular sienve 5A and Columbia-G charcoal adsorbed 11.5 times more xenon than krypton. Adsorption of 7.5% water by either of these adsorbents lowerend their capacity for krypton 25 to 30%, while saturating the sieve material ( approximates 15% H2O) lowered the krypton capacity 80%.
