The Determination of Excessive Emulsification by Coalescence Behavior Measurements

Description: The development of a remotely operated device for determining the coalescence times of plant process streams suspected of containing surfactants such as silicic compounds and fission product zirconium compounds is described. A general correlation between the coalescence times of pilot plant extraction column aluminum nitrate feeds and 3.25 percent tributyl phosphate extractant streams and the observations of column behavior of these streams is demonstrated. The application of the coalescence test to plant streams is given. (auth)

Expansion program 190 Building studies results

Description: It is the objective of this study to investigate preliminary expansion program requirements for process water, as supplied by 190 Building equipment; from the point of view of practical pumping, flywheel and pump suction head requirements. These requirements are to be determined at this time in such a form and accuracy as to be useful in refined estimating for budget study purposes. In order to obtain the objectives of this study at this time it has been decided to consider five different conditions of process water flow to a reactor. These conditions are flow to the reactor under summer conditions of operation in gallons per minute with a corresponding top of riser pressure in pounds per square inch: 85,000 gal/min, 580 psi; 100,000 gal/min, 480 psi; 130,000 gal/min, 280 psi; 150,000 gal/min, 280 psi; and 150,000 gal/min, 150 psi.

Experimental evidence to support the double head wave method of generating a rare faction first motion

Description: An earlier report suggested a double headwave method of generating a rarefaction first motion. In this method a geologic situation is selected so that energy that has been critically refracted once above the shot and once below shot arrives first. Since the theory of headwaves gives in the usual stationary phase approximation a ninety degree phase shift for each critical refraction, energy that has been critically refracted twice produces a 180 degree phase shift. Oil well data was presented to show that the necessary geologic situation exists in nature. A question has come up regarding the propagation of long wave lengths (16,000 ft) in the thin bed (3000 ft.) above the shot in the geologic situation cited in the earlier report. At the tine of writing of the report it was realized that the thickness of the bed should be considered in propagating the 3 to 5 wavelengths along the bed. The theoretical problem of propagation in high speed elastic bed has not been solved. The best information available at this time indicates that it might indeed be possible to go out into reef country and experimentally find a location suitable to generate a rarefaction first motion by the double head wave method. As in the earlier report this scheme is offered only as a second method that could fool a set of rules regarding first notions.

Recovery of Uranium and Plutonium From Sulfuric Acid Decladding Solutions

Description: Uranium and plutonium were recovered by liquid-liquid extraction from simulated sulfuric acid stainless steel decladding solution with several extractants. Consecutive extraction of U(IV) and Pu(III) or (IV) by 0.1 to 0 3 M primary amine in hydrocarbon-- alcohol diluent appeared promising, and chemical flowsheets were demonstrated in laboratoryscale continuous countercurrent extraction. Extraction of U(VI) with a dialkylphosphoric acid appeared promising when plutonium recovery is not needed. Recovery is also chemically feasible by extraction of U(VI) and Pu(IV) with an N-benzyl secondary alkyl amine or a trialkylphosphine oxide. The amine extracts are stripped with nitric acid, giving a sulfate-nitrate product solution. The organophosphorus extractants permit elimination of the sulfate but require sodium carbonate for stripping. (auth)

Solvent Extraction Recovery of Vanadium (and Uranium) From Acid Liquors With Di(2-Ethylhexyl) Phosphoric Acid

Description: Bench-scale studies were made on use of di(2ethylhexyl)-phosphoric acid in an organic diluent (Dapex process) for solvent extraction recovery of vanadium from acid leach liquors. Vanadium may be stripped from the solvent by either acidic or alkaline reagents, the former having been studied in considerably greater detail. A process for single-cycle recovery and separation of uranium and vanadium from sulfate leach liquors was shown to be attractive both from the standpoint of operation and chemical costs. Process schemes for recovery of vanadium from uranium-barren liquors are also described. On the basis of the encouraging laboratory results, pilot scale tests for specific applications are recommended. (auth)

Defect testing of coextruded uranium-zircaloy-II clad fuel material in a 300 C out-of-reactor recirculating water loop: Interim report

Description: A major problem in the development of a pressurized water reactor coolant system for the NPS is the rupture performance of the fuel elements. As water temperatures are increased to 300 C, uranium corrosion rates increase rapidly. Swelling of the uranium fuel by corrosion could cause the process tube to burst or reduce the tube cooling water flow below acceptable limits. The desirability of slow cooling of the water to avoid thermal shocks to the reactor piping after a rupture is detected further complicates discharge and decontamination problems as fuel will continue to corrode with attendant fuel element damage during the cooling period. Coextruded uranium-zircaloy-2 clad fuel elements are scheduled for use in the NPR. The rupture behavior of this type fuel material after heat treatment was studied in ELMO-4, an out-of-reactor recirculating water loop. Several types of initial defects were studied. Fuel materials with five different heat treatment histories and with different types of defects were tested to determine their rupture behaviors. The five conditions were (1) as-extruded material as received from Nuclear Metals, Inc., (2) beta heat-treated and water quenched, (3) beta heat-treated and air-cooled, (4) beta heat-treated, isothermally treated at 600 C and air-cooled, and (5) beta heat-treated and furnace cooled (vacuum). Both pinhole and cleavage type defects were studied. Most of the work consisted of measuring weight loss and physical dimension changes after various lengths of exposure in 300 C water. This report presents the results of the tests.
