Title: LOADING, SHIPPING AND TESTING PROCEDURES FOR TASK 2 ISOTOPIC POWERED THERMOELECTRIC GENERATOR. Preliminary Technical Manual

Abstract

A preliminary report on the operations and procedures for handling a 125- w thermoelectric generator and its isotopic heat source is presented. Full-scale mock-ups were used to develop the procedures. A cylindrical metal block of Inconel X will be remotely loaded with an isotope at ORNL. The block will then be sealed snd loaded into a specially designed cask and shipped by rail to the Martin nuclear hot cell facility, where the second phase of the operation will be conducted. (W.D.M.)
