Title: Pacific Northwest Laboratory monthly report to Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems, Space and Special Purposes Division, for October 1975

Abstract

At Hanford, strontium will be separated from the high-level waste, then converted to the fluoride, and doubly encapsulated in small, high-integrity containers for subsequent long-term storage. The fluoride conversion, encapsulation and storage will take place in the Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facilities (WESF). This encapsulated strontium fluoride represents an economical source of $sup 90$Sr if the WESF capsule can be licensed for heat source applications under anticipated use conditions. The objectives of this program are to obtain the data needed to license $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$ heat sources and specifically the WESF $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$ capsules. The information needed for licensing can be divided into three general areas: long-term SrF$sub 2$ compatibility data; chemical and physical property data on $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$; and capsule property data such as external corrosion resistance, crush strength, etc. The current program is designed to provide the required information.
