Title: CONTINUOUS TREATMENT APPARATUS

Abstract

An apparatus is described for dissolving a nuclear reactor fuel element in strong acid solutlon. The vapors and entrained liquid resulting from the violent reaction of dissolution are led into a reflux condenser which discharges, not directly back into the top of the reaction vessel in the conventional manner, but by a route leading to the bottom of the apparatus, thereby utilizing the energy of the reaction to bring about a circulation of the solution. (AEC)
