Title: PROGRESS REPORT ON THE INVESTIGATION OF SEPARABLE FLOATING LAYERS IN HANFORD DOUBLE-SHELL TANK SUPERNATES

Abstract

A review of studies performed the last four years at 222-S Laboratory on separable floating solids including demonstration of the formation of a floating layer in the organic-bound simulated solids and investigation of floating solids found in AN-101 and AW-104 as well as carbonate precipitation floating on the surface of AN-107 grab samples. Demonstrated that semivolatile organic analysis can detect separable organics including tributyl phosphate, degradation products of Quintolubric hydraulic fluid, and hydrocarbon as tentatively identified compounds. In addition, an evaluation of the relationship of small organic acids to the total organic carbon is discussed in selected double-shell tank supernate. A systematic approach is presented to monitor separable organics and insoluble particulates in the double-shell tank waste.
