The hydrogen reduction kinetics of uranium trioxide

Abstract

The kinetics of hydrogen reduction of UO{sub 3} denitrated in fluidized bed has been studied with thermogravimetric method. The results show that the reduction kinetics of UO{sub 3} obeys Spencer-Toply equation within 0{approx}95% conversion in range of 550{approx}660 deg C which coincides with chemical reaction controlled unreacted-core model. The apparent activation energy of the reduction reaction is found to be 136.3 kJ/mol. The effects of concentration of hydrogen on reaction rate are examined.
