  • At the General Electric Nuclear Fuel and Component Manufacturing facility, located near Wilmington, North Carolina, on May 28 and 29, 1991, approximately 150 kilograms of uranium were inadvertently transferred from safe process tanks to an unsafe tank located at the waste treatment facility, thus creating the potential for a localized criticality safety problem. The excess uranium was ultimately safely recovered when the tank contents were centrifuged to remove the uranium-bearing material. Subsequently, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission dispatched an Incident Investigation Team to determine what happened, to identify probable causes, and to make appropriate findings and conclusions. This report describesmore » the incident, the methodology used by the team in its investigation, and presents the team's findings and conclusions. 48 figs., 8 tabs.« less
  • This report is one of a series constituting the catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use. Each industry sector is addressed as a separate chapter of the study. The catalog was developed for the purpose of compiling relevant information concerning air, water, and solid waste emissions from industries which employ similar technologies, have common types of environmental impacts, and supply their products for further processing or consumption to the same general population of customers. This report addresses the following segments of the electronic component manufacturing industry: semiconductors, SIC 3674; capacitors, SIC 3675; resistors, SIC 3676; transformer and inductors, SICmore » 3677; printed circuit boards, SIC 3679052; electron tubes, SIC 36711, 36713; and cathode ray tubes, SIC 36712, 3671385.« less
  • The scope of the contract was to identify and estimate worker exposure to potentially hazardous chemical and physical agents used to manufacture electronic components. The manufacturing processes studied included those described by the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) numbers 3671 (receiving electron tubes), 3672 (cathode ray television picture tubes), 3673 (transmitting electron tubes), 3674 (semiconductors and related devices), 3675 (electronic capacitors), and 3676 (electronic resistors). The hazard assessment encompassed three interrelated tasks: tripartite meetings, literature reviews, and industrial hygiene walk-through surveys. Representatives from the industry, labor, and government were invited to one of two duplicate tripartite meetings held in New York,more » NY on Nov. 5, 1980, and San Francisco, CA. on Nov. 7, 1980. A review of the relevant published and unpublished literature from computerized files, reference documents, periodicals, and organizations (industry, trade organizations, unions, government, insurance companies, and academic) provided the basis for an industry profile, process characterization, recommendations of manufacturing facilities for walkthrough surveys, and discussion of the chemical agents, physical agents, and ergonomic stresses associated with the process operations. Industrial hygiene walk-through surveys were conducted at 15 manufacturing facilities. Eight of the surveyed facilities manufactured semiconductors, three manufactured electron tubes, two manufactured capacitors, and the remaining two manufactured resistors.« less
  • Ceramic materials are well suited for applications where temperature, wear, and corrosion resistance are necessary. The toughness and wear resistance properties that make ceramics desirable, also make fabrication of parts difficult. The objective of this CRADA was to increase the grinding efficiency on Ceradyne Incorporated silicon nitride. This was to be accomplished through optimization of grinding wheel life and increasing silicon nitride material removal rates. Experiments were conducted to determine the relationship between grinding parameters, wheel wear, and material removal rates. Due to excessive, unexplained variation in the experimental results, a consistent relationship between the selected grinding parameters and wheelmore » wear could not be established. Maximum material removal rates were limited by spindle and table drive power. Additional experiments were conducted to evaluate high speed grinding. When compared to conventional grinding speeds, the material removal rates using high speed grinding (13,000 SFM) increased by a factor of five to ten with no degradation of fracture strength.« less
