Identification of Curium-242 in Irradiated Neptunium

Description: Technical report. From Abstract : "Curium-242 was experimentally identified as a minor product of the irradiation of neptunium-237 in a nuclear reactor." From Introduction : "Determinations of the half-life, alpha energy, and daughter product of the purified curium nuclide were made in this study to confirm the identity as curium-242."

Surge suppressors for the PRTR process tube flow meters

Description: Each tube of the PRTR is provided with flow monitoring equipment consisting of a venturi flow meter in the inlet piping, sensing lines containing valves, and a Panellit flow transmitter. The flow transmitter does three things: converts the pressure drop signal of the venturi to a visual readout; provides an electrical signal for recording; and provides a signal to the safety circuit which causes a reactor scram should the flow increase or decrease beyond pre-set valves. After startup of the PRTR, it was found that the readings of flow meters on those process tubes which connect near the inlet of the bottom ring headers were fluctuating excessively. As an interim measure during the power tests at low reactor powers, the meter fluctuations were reduced by throttling the valves in the sensing lines from the flow venturi to the flow meter. This was recognized as being questionable for a permanent solution since this practice introduces an unknown and variable lengthening of the response characteristics of the meter. An experimental program was therefore undertaken to determine the degree of valve throttling which might be appropriate for fluctuation suppression and to device other and better methods of suppression. The experiments show that throttling of valves in the flow transmitter sensing lines is not a satisfactory way of decreasing the fluctuations. The valves must be closed to about 1/4 open before they decrease fluctuations significantly. Further closure to about 1/8 open causes an excessive lengthening of the response characteristics of the transmitter. This provides only a very narrow range of valve positions which are permissible and effective. The increased hydraulic flow resistance of 3--5 foot lengths of 1/16-inch tubing in the sensing line causes the flow transmitter system to become nearly critically damped. This will eliminate the oscillatory behavior of the readings without causing …

Serious Radiation Event - Hanford Capabilities

Description: The need for an industrial plant to know its capabilities to rescue personnel and minimize damage to vital operating equipment in the event of a serious accident has long been recognized. Although Hanford`s experience has been without a serious radiation event as characterized in this report, it is prudent to have an objective assessment of the capabilities which do exist and an analysis of the general capabilities which the plant should possess to maximize the effectiveness of rescue action in such an event and to limit the consequences to personnel, vital equipment, and the surrounding environs. It in the purpose of this report to: (1) make an assessment of the capabilities which are currently in place at Hanford to handle the multitude of serious problems arising from a serious radiation event; and (2) define the level of capability which the Hanford Atomic Products Operation should possess to minimize the consequences of such an accident. It is not the intent of this presentation to discuss the possibilities, probabilities, prevention or courses of serious radiation events.

Supplement A to design of 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-80001 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 that the nickel-plate integrity problem has been solved by irradiating a pilot loading (up to 100 charges) of fuel elements which have been nickel-plated on a production basis.

Production test IP-431-A expansion of overbore test facilities C Reactor

Description: The objective of this production test is to authorize the installation of at least 40 additional large size Zircaloy process tubes in graphite channels that have been enlarged to 2.275 inches at C Reactor and to charge these tubes with large diameter (CVIN) fuel elements to obtain preliminary conversion ratio data and further qualitative data regarding the irradiation behavior of large diameter fuel element designs.
