Abstract

During vitrification of fission product solutions, a high percentage of the ruthenium initially present in these solutions in the form of nitrosyl-ruthenium nitrates is volatilized with the production of the peroxide which itself is decomposed to ruthenium dioxide. The aim of this work has been to study the volatility of the ruthenium during the vitrification processes. During the distillation of the nitric solutions, we have studied in particular the influence on the volatility of the temperature , of the chemical form in which the ruthenium is introduced, of the bubbling of a gas through the solution, of the nitric concentration and of the nitrate concentration. During the calcination, we have observed the influence of the temperature, of the time, of the flow rate and of the nature of the carrier gas, as well as of the action of the ruthenium bi-oxide and the iron oxide on the volatility of the ruthenium. Part 2. This report deals with the study of the thermal decomposition of ruthenium peroxide, RuO{sub 4}, and its deposition on steel tubing. After a brief bibliographic review of the various properties of this substance, a study is made, in the first part, of its deposition on a steel  More>>

Part 2. This report deals with the study of the thermal decomposition of ruthenium peroxide, RuO{sub 4}, and its deposition on steel tubing. After a brief bibliographic review of the various properties of this substance, a study is made, in the first part, of its deposition on a steel tube. In order to do this, we pass a gas current containing RuO{sub 4} marked with {sup 106}Ru through a stainless steel tube subjected to a temperature gradient which decreases in the direction of the gas flow. The temperature at which RuO{sub 4} is deposited or is fixed on the tube is determined and the influence of the flow rate on this deposit is studied. In the second part, an attempt has been made to study by a static method the kinetics of the decomposition reaction of ruthenium peroxide to give the dioxide: RuO{sub 4} {yields} RuO{sub 2} + O{sub 2}. To do this, we have tried to introduce gaseous RuO{sub 4} into a container placed in an electric oven, and to follow the reaction by {gamma} counting. (author) [French] Au cours de la vitrification des solutions de produits de fission, un gros pourcentage de ruthenium initialement present dans ces solutions sous forme de nitrates de nitrosylruthenium est volatilise en donnant du peroxyde qui se decompose lui-meme en bioxyde de ruthenium. Ce travail a pour but l'etude de la volatilite du ruthenium au cours des procedes de vitrification : Durant la distillation des solutions nitriques, nous avons etudie en particulier l'influence sur la volatilite de la temperature, de la forme chimique du ruthenium introduit, du barbotage d'un gaz a travers la solution, de la concentration nitrique et de la concentration en nitrates. Durant la calcination, nous avons observe l'influence de la temperature, du temps, du debit et de la nature du gaz d'entrainement ainsi que l'action du bioxyde de ruthenium et de l'oxyde de fer sur la volatilite du ruthenium. Partie 2. Ce rapport concerne l'etude de la decomposition thermique du peroxyde de ruthenium, RuO{sub 4}, et de son depot sur les conduites en acier. Apres un rappel bibliographique des diverses proprietes de ce corps, nous etudions, dans une premiere partie, son depot sur un tube d'acier. Pour cela nous faisons passer un courant gazeux contenant du RuO{sub 4} marque au {sup 106}Ru dans un tube en acier inoxydable soumis a un gradient de temperature decroissant dans le sens du debit gazeux. Nous determinons la temperature a laquelle RuO{sub 4} se depose ou se fixe sur le tube et nous etudions l'influence de la vitesse des gaz sur ce depot. Dans une deuxieme partie nous essayons d'etudier par une methode statique la cinetique de la reaction de decomposition du peroxyde de ruthenium en son bioxyde: RuO{sub 4} {yields} RuO{sub 2} + O{sub 2}. Nous essayons pour cela d'introduire RuO{sub 4} gazeux dans un recipient place dans un four electrique et tentons de suivre l'evolution de la reaction par comptage {gamma}. (auteur)}
