Process optimization 709 program

Description: In the past two years a number of process optimization studies have been made with the aid of IBM machine programs. These programs have been designed to calculate optimum power levels and optimum goal exposures so that better insight could be gained for use in resolving plant operating plans. We feel that this approach has been highly successful. In January of 1960, a new program was written for the IBM 709 to incorporate the desirable features of the previous programs and to provide additional… more

Purex Plant flowsheet for high capacity study

Description: This report contains a flowsheet which was prepared to serve as a guide for an engineering study to be made to determine the costs and revisions required to increase the capacity of the Purex Plant to a 4.0 capacity factor. The needs for such a study are outlined in documents HW-62952 (Ref. 1) and HW-63927 (Ref. 2), which include increased 100 Area production forecasts and maximizing Palm recovery by continuous recovery equipment as primary factors. The flowsheet, shown graphically on the flows… more

An appraisal of the Hanford high-level waste program

Description: As set forth in the CPD Waste Management Program (HW-63958), new and improved methods of waste processing are planned to be initiated at Hanford. A major part of this program is concerned with the high-level wastes from the Purex Plant, with major objectives being the control of long-term hazards, the insurance of production continuity, and the attainment of positive waste accountability at reasonable over-all costs. Specific plans for the disposal of Purex wastes are based on the use of high t… more
