Title: Spectrophotometers for Uranium Monitoring in H Canyon

Abstract

SRNL Analytical Development and R&D Engineering have developed an On-Line Monitoring Spectrophotometer to provide measurements of uranium and nitric acid at several locations in H Canyon Second Uranium Cycle. Instruments are installed at Tanks 15.4, 16.8, 17.4, 17.5, and 18.7. Two-sigma uncertainties for the instruments are 5.3% uranium (all tanks) and 11% nitric acid (Tanks 16.8 and 17.5). The spectrophotometers are of similar design to those recently installed in HB-Line for Pu monitoring, although some changes have been made to make them more suitable for uranium measurements. A full description of design, components, and operating procedures is given.
