Air Lift Performance at Low Liquid Rates Using Oversized Piping and Lateral Runs

Description: The use of oversized piping in an air lift for transferring solutions at rates less than 5 liters per hour was proven feasible with certain limitations. Reliable operation was also obtained with air lifts containing a lateral run inserted between the point of air injection and the final discharge point. Discharge of the air lifts, especially at low liquid flows, was very erratic under the conditions studied. (auth)

Bibliography and Index on Vacuum and Low Pressure Measurement

Description: From Introduction: "This paper consists essentially of a) a bibliography, b) an author index, and c) an index of the subject matter of the bibliography. While the primary objective is to focus on vacuum measurement, it was believed essential to include in the bibliography articles on vacuum technology in some measure accessory or essential to vacuum measurement. For maximum usefulness, an index of the subject matter of the references has been prepared. The abstract publications listed in the previous paragraph have been freely drawn upon in preparing the bibliography."

CATASTROPHIC OXIDATION OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE ALLOYS

Description: The growth of nonprotective, crust-like oxide films was encountered in high-temperature alloy systems that contain molybdenum, vanadium, or tungsten as strengthening additions. The cause of accelerated oxidation in such alloys appears to be associated with the characteristically low melting temperatures of oxides of these refractory elements. The factors that contribute to a breakdown of oxidation protection in these systems are outlined and remedial methods which may be used to avoid catastrophic oxidation are discussed. Commonly encountered service failures that have resulted from catastrophic oxidation are also described. (auth)

CHARGING AND DISCHARGING OF DEMINERALIZER RESINS. CORE I, SEED 2. Test Results (T-612085). Section 1

Description: An investigation was conducted to flush the 1BD coolant purification system demineralizer of resin and to measurc the radiation level at pornts on the resin discharge line. It was found that the system demineralizer was satisfactorily flushed of resin. It was also found that the amount removed is measured by the amount required to recharge the demineralizer. (J.R.D.)

Chemical Processing Technology Quarterly Progress Report, April-June 1961

Description: The Idaho Chemical Processing Plant did not operate on fuel recovery during this period, due to extensive renovation and modiflcation of facilities. Potasslum fluoride was found to be an undesirable additive to the barium precipitating agent used in formation of barium fluozirconate, because of precipitation and loss of uranium, although essentially complete precipitation of zirconium was achieved. Addition of hydrofluoric acid with barium precipitant, to achieve a fluoride/zirconium mole ratio of 5.5, was found to give a total zirconium recovery of 05%, including approximately 10% recovered after concentration of the supernate from the original precipitation. Removal of 97% of the zirconium and fluoride from zirconium -uranium dissolver solutions was achieved by precipitation with two moles of sodium formate per mole of zirconium. Uranium was readily recovered from the concentrated filtrate and wash solution by TBP extraction. The preparation and characterization of zirconium nitrate dibutylphosphate are described, and the solubility in Amsco was found to be similar to that of the uranlum dibutylphosphate complex (2 to 4 x 10/sup -5/ M). Stability studies indicated very little, if any, oxidation of ferrous to ferric iron ln a normal raffinate environment, and ferrous iron has a very low molar extinction coefficsent (0.8) compared with that of uranium (15) in the spectral region near 415 m mu . Pilot plant studies of the fluidized-bed calcination process for reduction of radioactive liquld wastes to the more-easily-stored solid form was continued in the two-foot-square calciner with production, for the first time over a prolonged period of continuous operation, of alpha alumina-free product from a feed contalning substantial sodium. Intra-particle porosities ranging from 0.04 to 0.60 were obtained. Differences in alpha-forming tendency of amorphous aluminas with varied calcination histories were demonstrated but attempts at correlation with known variables in fluid bed calciner operation were not successful.

Examinations of Pump Impellers From Sodium and Fused Salt Pump Endurance Tests

Description: Examinations of three Inconel pump impellers were made to establish the extent of cavitation damage and degree of carburization sustained during pump endurance tests. The pumps, two of which circulated fluoride salt and one sodium, operated for the bulk of the test programs in the temperature range 1000 to 1250 deg F. Cavitation damage was manifested in each of the impellers by the formation of deep pits (in excess of 1/4-in.), the location of damaged areas varying with impeller geometry. Pit formation appeared to have occurred by uniform rather than preferential removal of metal components. Each of the impellers exhibited heavily carburized zones along exposed surfaces. The cause of carburization may be associated with the type of gas purge utilized for these pumps. (auth)

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.

Fission-Product Plateout From a Helium Gas Stream

Description: The experimental procedures used and the results obtained in studying the plateout of nongaseous fission products that may escape from a helium gas stream are discussed. Results show that significant quantities of high-activity fission products are volatilized from powdered uranium dioxide at 1800 deg F, and the gross activity for each of the materials (Nichrome, type 302 stainless steel, and quartz) exposed to the fission product vapors follows the same general pattern. Some indication is given that high nickel content promotes plateout at high temperatures as is shown by testing nickel, Nichrome, types 310 and 405 stainless steel, and quartz. Radioisotopes that were identified as being deposited on the specimens were iodine-131 and -133, molybdenum-99, ruthenium- 103, and tellurium-132. Plateout occurred on all of the materials exposed to the helium stream from 1700 to 400 deg F. (N.W.R.)

FUEL CYCLE PROGRAM. A BOILING WATER REACTOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. Quarterly Report No. 5, July 1961-September 1961

Description: Advanced Fuel Power-Limit Test. Fabrication of the 50 basic fuel assemblies has been completed. The three instrumented fuel assemblies were assembled and calibrated. Equipment and procedures have been prepared for the VBWR stability tests. Forty-two assemblies were irradiated during the last VBWR run. Average exposure for all assemblies which have been irradiated are tabulated. Detailed examination of the centermelt calibration assembly is in progress. Preliminary metallography indicates that centermelting did not occur. The conductivity of UO/sub 2/ is appreciably higher than the design basis of 1.1 Btu/hr-ft/sup 2/ ( f F/ft). This result indicates that the fuel performance limit is higher than the burnout heat flux limit. Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics. Use of a rough'' liner in the single rod test section resulted in a l0 to 43% increase in burnout heat flux at various operating conditions. The high-speed movies of the high pressure observational boiling experiments have been edited and assembled. Analytic work is being continued. A theoretical analysis of two-phase pressure drop and density distribution has been made. Experimental Physics. Isotopic analyses of unirradiated fuel pellets show good uniformity. Preliminary calculations of expected isotopic compositions during irradiation are being made. (auth)
