  • This report presents the progress and completion of a five-year study undertaken at Idaho State University of the measurement of very small worth reactivity samples comparing open and closed loop oscillator techniques.The study conclusively demonstrated the equivalency of the two techniques with regard to uncertainties in reactivity values, i.e., limited by reactor noise. As those results are thoroughly documented in recent publications, in this report we will concentrate on the support work that was necessary. For example, we describe in some detail the construction and calibration of a pilot rod for the closed loop system. We discuss the campaign tomore » measure the required reactor parameters necessary for inverse-kinetics. Finally, we briefly discuss the transfer of the open loop technique to other reactor systems.« less
  • BS>Three Type 304 stainless steel miniature heat exchangers were subjected to selected corrosive water conditions in a high pressure water loop. One exchanger tailed by stress corrosion cracking after only 42 hours of service and another failed after 1085 hours. The third exchanger did not fail after a service period of 1890 hours. Stress corrosion cracking was found in the submerged portions of both the tubes and tube sheets of the two exchangers which failed. Cracking was observed in one unit at the tube-tuboe sheet junction exposed to the steam phase. The failures which were encourtered were all due tomore » transgranular stress corrosion cracking. Expanding the tubes at the tube-tube sheet junction was sufficient to avoid penetration by the corrosive environment. The tolerable limits of environmental oxygen and caustic were indicated to be quite low. A bimetallic miniature heat exchanger (MIN) which was tested along with MIN 1,2, and 3 has not failed and will undergo further testing. Results for this unit will be reported at a later date.

  • This quarterly report covers activities of the Two-Stage, Close-Coupled Catalytic Liquefaction of Coal Program during the period of July 1--September 30, 1992, at Hydrocarbon Research, Inc., in Lawrenceville and Princeton, New Jersey. This DOE contract period is from October 1, 1998 to December 31, 1992. The overall purpose of the program is to achieve higher yields of better quality transportation and turbine fuels and to lower the capital and production costs in order to make the products from direct coal liquefaction competitive with other fossil fuel products. The quarterly report covers work on Laboratory testing, Bench Scale Studies and PDUmore » Activities focusing on scale-up of the Catalytic Two-Stage Liquefaction (CTSL) processing of sub-bituminous Black Thunder Coal.« less
  • The overall purpose of the program is to achieve higher yields of better quality transportation and turbine fuels and to lower the capital and production costs in order to make the products from direct coal liquefaction competitive with other fossil fuel products. This quarterly report covers work on Laboratory Testing and Bench Scale Studies with Black Thunder and Illinois No. 6 coals. The major activities during this period were preparation and testing of FeOOH-impregnated Black Thunder coal in Bench Scale Run (CC-15) and evaluation of A060 (AKZO) NiMo extrudates with Illinois No. 6 coal (CC-1 6). Using a procedure developedmore » by Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center approximately 1100 lbs. of iron-impregnated coal was prepared. This FEOOH impregnated coal was evaluated in a 14 day Bench Run (CC-15) with and without FeOOH. Results were promising with distillate yields of 60--66 Wt% MAF coal versus 57.4 Wt% without iron catalyst. The process consisted of FEOOH impregnated coal preparation and use of a pretreatment reactor plus a back-mixed first stage followed by a supported catalyst second stage. Since Shell 317 bimodal NiMo catalyst is no longer manufactured, Bench run CC-1 6 was conducted to evaluate A060 AKZO experimental catalyst. This catalyst was prepared in quantity and successfully tested in ebullated beds at Wilsonville. Results show the overall performance to be as good as Shell 317 and that A060 is a good substitute catalyst for future experimentation.« less
