Title: A COLORIMETER FOR IN-LINE ANALYSIS OF URANIUM AND PLUTONIUM SOLUTIONS

Abstract

A colorimeter is described that can be used to monitor process solutions continuously for uranyl nitrate or plutonium nitrate concentration. The instrument was tested under plant conditions in the concentration range from 0.1 to 70 grams of uranium per liter and 0.1 to 10 grams of plutonium per liter. The instrument error was plus or minus 1% of the span, but errors of 15 to 20% can be caused by other variables such as acidity and other salts present. (auth)
