Equilibrium Adsorption of Krypton and Xenon on Activated Carbon and Linde Molecular Sieves

Description: Equilibrium krypton and xenon adsorption isotherms were obtained for four varieties of charcoal and for Linde Molecular Sieves Types 4A and 5A, generally at 0, 25, and 60°c. Such data are of interest in connection with design and evaluation of adsorbers for radioactive noble gas fission products. The isotherms were fitted, by linear regression analysis, to straight-line forms of the Freundlich and Langmuir equations. The Freundlich linear equation gave the better fit and the parameters of this … more

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 Reac… more

Evaluation of Kanigen, Electroless Nickel Plating for Steam Side of a Sodium Component Steam Generator

Description: Introduction: This is a final report on the evaluation of Kanigen electroless nickel plating for surfaces in contact with water and steam i a sodium heated AISI Type 316 stainless steel steam generator. The purpose of the coasting was to afford protection from stress corrosion cracking originating on the water-steam side of the unit. It has been concluded that the kanigen coating does not afford adequate protection for the services condition intended. This work was performed as part of the r… more

Apparent Observations Ionic Sound Waves in an Arc Plasma

Description: Oscillations have been observed in a magnetically supported cylindrical rod of plasma. This rod of plasma can be the discharge occurring in the defining aperture of a Mode II, pressure gradient arc. Similar oscillations can also occur in the column of a Mode I arc. These oscillations appear to be the mechanism that drives the Mode II blowup phenomena.

EBWR CORE 1A PHYSICS ANALYSIS

Description: The studies were primarily directed toward selection of the optimum loading for Core lA and a prediction of its properties. Included are analyses of some relevant experiments on Core 1, and prelimlnary modifications of Core 1 to Core lA. The factors which must be considered for the optimum loading determination are discussed. Four different loading pattenrs were investigated, which were considered to span the numerous possibilitles. Adequate cold shutdown was found to be almost unobtainable wit… more

Revised requirements for continuous birch recovery at Redox

Description: The process criteria proposed use of the existing organic wash column, 10, as a stripping column for the neptunium accumulation and isolation cycles. It is now proposed to employ a new processing concept which will permit the use of the scrub section of the neptunium extraction column, 1S, for neptunium stripping thereby obviating the use of the 10 Column. This proposed new scheme will provide increased neptunium stripping efficiency and greater processing flexibility for the 1S Column. The rev… more

A Spectrophotometric Atlas of the Spectrum of CH from 3000A to 5000A

Description: Report of the near ultraviolet and visible emission spectrum of CH presented in the form of a spectrophotometric atlas. The spectrum was recorded photoelectrically from an acetylene-oxygen flame in the region 4900 to 3000 A by use of a high-resolution grating monochromator. Each of the lines in the CH spectrum is identified.

The Infrared Spectra Of Marginally Metallic Systems, Sodium-Ammonia Solutions

Description: The sodium-ammonia solution system permits investigation of an array of compositions spanning the transition from non-metallic to metallic bonding. Reflection spectra in the range 1-20 [ ] were measured for solutions of mole ratio 5.5 to 168 [ ] per Na. The dilute solutions show peaks characteristic of the vibrations of ammonia and a strong peak near 1.5 [ ] which is assigned to the solvated [ ] species. Concentrated solutions show high reflectivity over broad wavelength ranges. The results for… more

Specific activity of the NPR primary coolant loop

Description: In coolant system such as NPR's, the coolant activity level increase with each succeeding pass through the reactor flux until a saturation limit is reached. Therefore, the activity level of the NPR coolant system will be much higher than that of the old reactor once-through systems. This report is the determination of the specific activities (disintegrations/cc{center dot}sec) of the various coolant impurities which determine the total activity of the coolant system. 10 refs., 13 figs., 2 tabs.

MUFT-5--a Fast Neutron Spectrum Program for the Philco-2000

Description: The program was written for the Philco-2000 computer to provide a nuclear design computing tool equivalent to the IBM-704 computer program MUFT-4 and to provide a set of routines for a future spatial multigroup program, P/sub 3/ MG-1. In addition to the features of its 704 predecessor, MUFT-5 provides a more complete isotopic edit, an optional blackness coefficient edit, and the use of a complete P/sub i/->i>s library. The resultant program is found to be easier to use because of the simplicity… more
