Title: Analysis of Tank 38H (HTF-38-18-78, -79) and Tank 43H (HTF-43-18-80, -81, -83) Samples for Support of the Enrichment Control and Corrosion Control Programs

Abstract

SRNL analyzed samples from Tank 38H and Tank 43H to support ECP and CCP. Compared with recent samples, the surface and sub-surface samples from Tank 38H show much lower concentrations of most species analyzed except for silicon. The Tank 38H samples show stratification in the tank with the concentration of species in the surface sample being much lower than in the sub-surface sample and both samples being much lower than recent results. The Tank 43H surface and two sub-surface samples generally showed consistent results across the three samples and compare well with recent analyses. The lowest sub-surface sample from Tank 43H contained slightly higher concentrations of uranium and plutonium likely due to the presence of a small amount of dark sludge solids in the sample.
