Title: Dynamic Modeling of Radioactive Melter Off-Gas Systems

Abstract

Dynamic models to simulate the performance of off-gas treatment and control systems for the High Level Waste (HLW) and Low Activity Waste (LAW) melters in the proposed Waste Treatment Plant at the Hanford Site have been developed using Aspen Custom Modeler(TM). The models are designed to give accurate pressure drops through the off-gas equipment and to show the dynamic behavior of gas pressure and flow during startup, normal operation, steam surges, and off-normal operation such as fan failures, and to evaluate the performance of proposed control strategies. This paper describes these models and presents some simulation results.
