Title: Evaluation of exposure conditions for the water-side corrosion test of a sodium heated steam generator evaporator model employing a duplex tube (2160 hours at critical heat flux - phase III SSGM tests). [LMFBR]

Abstract

This report describes the specialized corrosion test water steam loop, test procedures, test conditions, and test results. A complete water chemistry and thermal hydraulic performance history is given and evaluated for the Phase III test program. The movement of the dryout location and the heat flux variations in pre- and post-critical heat flux regions are documented and analyzed. On seven occasions during the course of the test program to date, the operating conditions drifted from the CHF reference Phase III operation in the dryout regime into the DNB regime. The corresponding corrosion mechanism experienced differing exposure conditions on these occasions. CHF sensitivity to this apparent drift behavior is evaluated.
