Title: Zirconium Recycle Test Equipment for Hot Cell Operations

Abstract

The equipment components and assembly support work were modified for optimized, remote hot cell operations to complete this milestone. The modifications include installation of a charging door, Swagelok connector for the off-gas line between the reactor and condenser, and slide valve installation to permit attachment/replacement of the product salt collector bottle.

  • An analysis of Plutonium Recycle Test Reactor operating requirements under conditions of electrical power failure has shown that the necessary levels of safety, experimental flexibility, and economy and ease of operation will be retained by: installing a 300-kw diesel-generator for emergency electrical power, increasing the storage capacity for compressed instrument air, installing a low- capacity, highhead boiler feedwater pump, providing for emergency light water injection into the calandria ring headers, separating the primary and moderator systems, connecting the fog spray system into the sanitary water system, providing helium purge shutoff valving at the pressurizer and installing piping from separate compressedmore » helium storage to the pressurizer to permit pressurizatlon of the primary system during periods of total loss of power, and installing a 10-kw d-c-powered alternator to supply instrument power.

  • This TOP prescribes methods for evaluating the nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) alarms and detectors in the natural cold regions environment. It contains procedures for evaluating storage, transportation, environmental performance, logistic supportability, reliability, human factors, and safety. It describes the necessary facilities and instrumentation requirements for test accomplishment.
  • This Test Operations Procedure (TOP) describes tests to measure certain toxic-gas and toxic-metal concentrations produced during the operation of equipment, such as the firing of vehicle armament and the operation of engines, fuel-fired personnel heaters, and other fuel-burning equipment (e.g., generators, compressors). Topics include: Contaminants (Toxic Hazards) Summary, Carbon monoxide, Ammonia, Sulfur dioxide, Oxides of nitrogen, and Lead; Instrumentation -- Continuous-reading instrumentation, Colorimetric methods, Gravimetric methods, and Instrument selection; Required Test Conditions -- All test items, and Preparation of test item; Test Procedures -- Weapons (gun and rocket related), and Vehicles and other fuel-burning equipment; Data Presentation -- Exposure limits,more » Test results, and Methods of computation; Appendices -- Standards, and Procedures for testing for lead, copper, and other metal concentrations during weapon firing tests.« less
