Plutonium Release Incident at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Description: A nonnuclear explosion involving an evaporator occurred in a shielded cell in the Radiochemical Processing Pilot plant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Plutonium released from the processing cell contaminated areas in the pilot plant building and nearby streets and building surfaces. The explosion is considered the result of rapid reaction of nitrated organic compounds formed by the inadvertent nitration of about 14 liters of a proprietary decontaminating reagent.

The Recovery of Fission Product Rare Earth Sulfates from Purex LWW

Description: A research and development program aimed at devising processes for the economical recovery of the potentially valuable long-lived fission products from Purex waste has been under wat at Hanford for several years. When this work has begun, the concentrated waste was primarily a nitric acid solution (6 to 10 M HNO3) containing the fission products and relatively small concentrations of iron, sulfate, and other corrosion products. Flowsheets based on classical separation schemes and rather similar… more

Experiments On Alfven-Wave Propagation

Description: This paper reports an extension of previous experimental work with Alfven waves. We consider hydromagnetic waves propagating in a cylindrical plasma in a uniform axial magnetic field. The copper tube is filled with highly ionized plasma by an electrically driven switch-on ionizing wave. After the tube is filled with plasma, a hydromagnetic wave is induced by a radial current flow from the small molybdenum electrode to the copper tube. The force produced by this radial current together with the … more

Diffusion of Krypton Through Uranium Carbide - Final Report

Description: This program was established to develop new information concerning the mechanism of diffusion of fission gases (krypton and xenon) through UO2 and UC. The work was to concentrated on measurements of diffusion rates in unirradiated materials in the temperature range of 1000°C to above 2000°C, these determinations being important to the projected use of refractory fuel materials in high-temperature, high-burnup reactors.

Supplement A to PT-IP-263-A-FP evaluation of chemically nickel plated fuel elements

Description: Irradiation of the initial test in this program involving ten tubes of alternately charged nickel-plated C-64 alloy clad test elements and X-8001 alloy control elements has been successfully completed. The test indicated that the nickel-plate spalling problem has been resolved as no significant spalling or flaking was observed during the post-irradiation examination. The second test in this program will be to verify the performance of nickel-plate with a pilot loading (up to 100 charges) of fue… more

Neptunium-237 content of E-metal

Description: An analytical program was carried out to obtain an accurate single point measurement of neptunium-37 content versus exposure for E-metal. Two large volume dissolver solution samples representing E-metal from the KW, KE, C, and DR reactors were obtained from the Redox Plant for the basis of analysis. The neptunium-237/U ratio was determined by direct analysis, and the exposure was estimated from the measured Pu/U ratio and the uranium-235 burn-out.

Final report on production test IP-289-I, Supplement 1, H reactor export flow test

Description: The raw water export system forms the last ditch water supply system to the ``O`` and ``C`` type reactors; in the event of electrical and steam power failure, the export system is designed to supply enough raw water coolant. After the original export orifice was modified twice, the export system was retested.

PT-IP-344-A-FP, Evaluation of Al-Si bond characteristics

Description: Tests in which aluminum-jacketed, Al-Si bonded uranium fuel elements were baked at various temperatures have shown there is a time-temperature relationship for Al-Si layer decomposition. For heat transfer and secondary coolant barrier considerations, the extent of bonding layer deterioration during fuel element irradiation is important. Currently, Al-Si bonded fuel elements show evidence of spire bond separation, and to a lesser degree, can-bond separation following irradiation. Such evidence h… more
