Title: DISSOLUTION OF STAINLESS STEEL CLAD POWER REACTOR FUELS WITH NITRIC ACID AND HYDROFLUORIC ACID

Abstract

The application of the Niflex Process for the dissolution of stainless steel clad fuel elements was studied on a pilot plant scale. A summary of pilot plant data and supporting laboratory information is presented. It was concluded that the process is reasonably successful in laboratory and pilot unit tests; however, more suitable construction materials are needed, and the reaction mechanisms must be studied further for optimization purposes. (J.R.D.)
