Chemical Processing Technology Quarterly Progress Report, April-June 1962

Description: Aqueous zirconium fuel processing studies, directed at adapting the hydrofluoric acid process to continuous dissolution-complexing in order to increase the capacity of the ICPP process, resulted in determination of dissolution rates over a wide range of conditions. The addition of oxidants to 4.8M hydrofluoric acid used for the continuous dissolution of 3% uranium-Zircaloy- 2 fuel decreased the amount of uranium-containing residue in the dissolver at the expense of a decreased dissolution rate.… more

Boron Carbide-Graphite Nuclear Control-Rod Material: Preparation, Thermal Stability, and Irradiation Evaluation

Description: Boron carbide-graphite nuclear control-rod materials containing up to 45 wt% B were prepared by hot-pressing techniques. The densities of these compacts decreased with increasing B content. Compact strengths, however, were noticeably increased with B content of 20 wt%, suggesting that the B acts as a sintering aid. Thermal stability was evaluated by annealing compacts under a variety of temperature and atmospheric conditions. The upper limit of the ioss of 13 was 5% to 10%~ in 200 hr at 2000 de… more

An Analysis of the Inherent Stability of the EOCR

Description: The inherent stability of the EOCR at full power, exclusive of the heat exchanger, is investigated. Space and time dependent differential equations and transfer functions for the nuclear and thermal processes occurring in the reactor core and vessel are derived. Reactor stability is analyzed by application of the Nyquist stability criterion. The results show that the EOCR has an extremely large margin of inherent stability. (auth)

Recrystallization of Beta-Heat-Treated Dingot-Uranium Cores. Topical Report

Description: Annealing beta-heat-treated production-size dingoturanium core blanks in the high alpha range (1150 to 1200 deg F) produced a fine, equiaxed grain size by a recrystallization process. The extent of recrystallization is dependent upon the rate of cooling through the beta-to-alpha transformation, the time and temperature of annealing, and whether or not impurities that retard grain growth are present. The cooling rate through the beta-to-alpha transformation was varied by using a range of beta te… more

Hallam Nuclear Power Facility Preoperational Test Completion Report Dry Criticality

Description: A dry criticality test was carried out to determine the minimum critical mass of the HNPF Core without sodium. A subcritical calibration of the central control rod was performed and the relative reactivity worths of the inner ring of six control rods were determined. The extrapolated critical loading for the various plots after each incremental fuel loading with all rods out is shown. A tabulation is presented of multiplication data taken throughout the dry critical test. In order to find the r… more

Results of production test IP-528-I, F Reactor high tank drawdown test

Description: A continued decrease in flow measured during the periodic high velocity flushes indicated that corrosion buildup in the high tank discharge lines was deceasing backup flow to the reactor. An accurate determination of the high tank flow rate to the reactor was needed to evaluate present back-up adequacy. Riser pressure and flow rate were also measured with throttled high tank discharge lines to establish the low flow and critical portion of the reactor hydraulic characteristic curve. This report… more

A feasibility study: The application of cooling towers for reduction of Hanford Plant heat load to the Columbia River

Description: Hanford production reactor operation requires the rejection of very large heat loads. At the present time the heat load is rejected to the Columbia River by the reactor effluent. At low river flows the hot effluent can have appreciable effects on river temperatures. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and costs of Cooling Towers as a means of reducing the heat load rejected to the Columbia River. After evaluation of published information, available data, and Hanford plant c… more

General parameter study of a bare, cylindrical reactor having the same materials as Tory II-C

Description: This memorandum describes studies undertaken to investigate the properties of Tory II-C with the aims of reducing weight and size and in increasing performance. Space and weight limitations aboard existing sea-going launch vehicles required this general parameter study which utilizes a bare, cylindrical reactor having the same materials as Tory II-C.

PT IP-416 measurement of the horizontal rod strength at H Reactor. Final report

Description: The object of this test was to obtain data concerning the reactivity of the horizontal rods in the E-N fuel loading at H Reactor. An accurate calibration of the control rods could then be used to provide a more accurate measurement of the other reactivity variables associated with the E-N loading. A comprehensive rod calibration test was performed at H Pile in 1957. Results of the present test, needed because of the ``blacker`` E-N fuel in the pile, have been normalized to the 1957 test results… more
