Title: THE SNAP II POWER CONVERSION SYSTEM TOPICAL REPORT NO. 10, SODIUM PUMP DESIGN AND TESTING

Abstract

BS>SNAP II is the designation for a 3 kw nuclear auxiliary power unii for utilization in a satellite vehicle. The SNAP Il system consists of a reactor source which utllizes a mercury Rankine engine for power conversion. Design details and test data for the primary fluid reactor coolant pump used to transfer heat from the reactor to the mercury boiler are described. (auth)
