Title: ARMY GAS-COOLED REACTOR SYSTEMS PROGRAM. FINAL HAZARDS SUMMARY REPORT FOR THE ML-1 NUCLEAR POWER PLANT. SUPPLEMENT I

Abstract

A supplement to the ML-1 Hazards Summary Report, No. IDO-28560, originally published in November 1960, is presented. The material in the Supplement amplifies and revises various sections of the original publication, in order to up-date it and to satisfy the requirements pertinent to power operation of the entire ML-1 plant. The text, with illustrations and graphs, is arranged in five sections and two appendixes: (1) a summary that includes an up-todate tabulation of power plant characteristics; (2) descriptions of significant changes to certain ML-1 componentsfuel element, leak-detection and refueling equipment, stainless steel uses, control blade locking mechanisms, and moderator deoxygenation; (3) operation of the plant with air as the coolant; (4) the Phase II Test Program under which the combined reactor and power-conversion packages will be operated; and (5) examples of detailed operating procedures for the test program. The appendixes contnin: (1) discussions of recommendations made by the U. S. AEC concerning ML-1 operations, and (2) a list of errata in the original report. (auth)
