Title: Production Facility Prototype Blower 1000 Hour Test Results III

Abstract

Long duration operations tests of the Aerzen GM 12.4 roots style blower in a closed loop configuration provides valuable data and lessons learned for long-term operation at the Mo-99 production facility. The blower was operated in a closed loop configuration with the flow conditions anticipated in plant operation with a Mo-100 target inline. The additional thermal energy generated from beam heating of the Mo-100 disks was not included in these tests. Eight long duration 500 and 1000 hour tests have been completed since the first test was performed in January of 2016. All eight long duration tests have proven successful in exposing preventable issues related to oil and helium leaks.
