Title: Part 2 -- current program integrating strategies and lubrication technology

Abstract

This paper is the second of two that describe the Predictive Maintenance Program for rotating machinery at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. The Predictive Maintenance program has been enhanced through organizational changes and improved interdisciplinary usage of technology. This paper will discuss current program strategies that have improved the interaction between the Vibration and Lube Oil programs. The {open_quotes}Lube Oil{close_quotes} view of the combined program along with case studies will then be presented.

  • A slide presentation is given that discusses control strategies to meet current and future regulations. Most new regulations will require incremental reductions in specific emissions creating a market for technologies that can be retrofitted to existing systems. Since most metals are associated with particulate matter, improving particle collection will lead to reduced metal emissions and the disposal of sorbents used for capturing vapor phase pollutants, e.g., SO{sub 2} and Hg, can dominate the economics of the process.
  • The U.S. Department of Energy`s Hanford site, in eastern Washington, must remediate 177 underground storage tanks, each one containing 200,000 to 4,000,000 liters of radioactive waste materials. Characterization of the chemical and physical properties of the waste material is required to ensure safe interim storage of the waste and to design the retrieval and preprocessing methods. The hostile environment, limited tank access, heterogeneous nature of the tank contents and difficulties in acquiring and handling samples complicate the characterization task. In situ screening of the waste material may expedite some analytic tasks, as will advanced sampling systems. As a first stepmore » toward in situ screening, Raman and near-infrared spectroscopy systems have been tested with waste samples in a hot cell. Laser ablation/mass spectroscopy systems are being tested with tracer loaded waste simulants. It is anticipated that future refinements of spectroscopic systems will allow deployment of probes inside the waste tanks and in process lines during the retrieval and processing of the waste.« less
  • A brief summary of the scope of HSST projects is presented. A major emphasis throughout the course of this work is the verification of methods of fracture prediction which can be utilized in an assessment of pressure vessel integrity. The utility of small specimens which are appropriate for surveillance purposes continues to be investigated in both the unirradiated and post- irradiated conditions. 11 references (auth)
  • In order to study the morphogenesis of lung cancer, inhalation experiments on animals pretreated with carcinogens were performed. Tracheal washing to precondition the respiratory tract epithelium before exposure to aerosols was described. Rat tracheal transplant experiments are discussed. Polycyclic hydrocarbons released from beeswax pellets were used as the carcinogen. Cholesterol and various polymers were used to control the release of carcinogen and examine the co-carcinogenic effect of such agents on the respiratory epithelium. (DC)
  • This presentation will be concerned with an overview of current work at the inhalation facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory which deals with oxidant gases. Three main areas will be discussed. These are: (1) irritant gases as cofactors in nitrosamine-induced tumorigenesis, (2) modulation of tumor incidence using the tracheal washing model for tumor induction, and (3) the role of frequency and duration of oxidant gas exposure on pulmonary toxicity. Since man is rarely exposed to doses of chemical carcinogens large enough to result in tumors by themselves, investigations of factors which could influence tumor incidence from carcinogen exposure are ofmore » great practical importance.« less
