Development of the radioisotope production facility for the KMRR -Studies on application of radiation and radioisotopes-

Technical Report:

Abstract

It`s been 30 years since to start RI and labelled compound production in this country. But it is so limited to certain nuclide due to small research reactor and its RI production facilities. In order to upgrade and expand RI, it is necessary to operate high neutron flux reactor and advanced RI production facilities. KMRR, power is 30 MW{sub th} and maximum thermal neutron flux is 5 x 10{sup 14} n/cm{sup 2}sec, is under construction and it will be completed on the end of this year. Building and basic facility for RI production were included in KMRR project but hot cell and its equipment were not. It is urged to complete RI production facilities to produce RI for medical and industrial use. Design of RI production facility was done with KAERI`s 30 years accumulated experiences and reference of many advanced country`s facilities. Most of equipments and components for RI facility were made and installed by domestic suppliers except a few special items. Some part of RI production facility will be completed before KMRR operation, this means will contribute RI demend for the country and KMRR utilization. Basic civil structure for RI production such as building, concrete hot cells, source storage  More>>

Basic civil structure for RI production such as building, concrete hot cells, source storage pool and basic utility system is part of the KMRR project. Basic equipment and components for 4 concrete hot cells, 17 lead hot cells and its equipment, purification system for Co-60 source storage pool, ventilation system, radiation monitoring system, and fire protection system are under this project. The followings were carried out during second year of the project period. Installation on the first year`s manufacturing order: (1) Install overhead crane (2 tons) at inside of concrete hot cell (2) Manipulator performance test for lead hot cell (3) Radiation shielding window performance test for lead hot cell. Place manufacturing order for developed items: (1) Select qualified vendor and fabricate for led hot cell (2) Select qualified vendor and fabricate for HTS.}
