Abstract

In this paper the basic requirements for control of gaseous and particulate effluents are given as applied to problems of feed material production, isotope separation, fuel element fabrication, fuel recovery and reactor operation. There are also instances where non-radioactive nuclear materials with toxic or nuisance effluents such as from beryllium and zirconium production are of concern and these too must be controlled at reasonable costs. The factors involved in capital and operating costs of gas cleaning equipment and the types of applications in the United States are described in some detail. Gaseous effluent problems have, of course, been attacked and controlled by several types of device but their performance has been measured on a comparable basis. It is thus possible to judge operating characteristics on an economic basis as related to power consumption, adsorbent costs, space charges, corrosion problems and other operational factors. The United States Atomic Energy Commission through its contract with the Harvard University Air Cleaning Laboratory has initiated an evaluation program with cooperation, from the various facilities and contractors to the Commission. In this study the basic factors necessary to obtain quantitative cost delineation and evaluation have been outlined and some preliminary findings will be presented. The  More>>

There are also instances where non-radioactive nuclear materials with toxic or nuisance effluents such as from beryllium and zirconium production are of concern and these too must be controlled at reasonable costs. The factors involved in capital and operating costs of gas cleaning equipment and the types of applications in the United States are described in some detail. Gaseous effluent problems have, of course, been attacked and controlled by several types of device but their performance has been measured on a comparable basis. It is thus possible to judge operating characteristics on an economic basis as related to power consumption, adsorbent costs, space charges, corrosion problems and other operational factors. The United States Atomic Energy Commission through its contract with the Harvard University Air Cleaning Laboratory has initiated an evaluation program with cooperation, from the various facilities and contractors to the Commission. In this study the basic factors necessary to obtain quantitative cost delineation and evaluation have been outlined and some preliminary findings will be presented. The paper also presents a review of other economic studies made in the United States on particular process or facility applications. (author) [French] Le memoire definit les regles fondamentales auxquelles doit obeir le controle des effluents gazeux et particulaires dans les domaines suivants : production des matieres destinees a alimenter les reacteurs, separation des isotopes, fabrication des cartouches de combustible, recuperation du combustible et fonctionnement des reacteurs. De plus - et c'est notamment ce qui se passe avec la production de beryllium et de zirconium -- il y a des cas ou des matieres nucleaires non radioactives ont des effluents toxiques ou nuisibles, qui doivent egalement faire l'objet d'un controle relativement peu onereux. L'auteur du memoire procede a un examen detaille des facteurs qui interviennent dans le prix d'achat et les frais d'exploitation du materiel d'epuration des gaz; il decrit en outre les divers systemes utilises aux Etats-Unis. On s'est naturellement efforce de resoudre le probleme des effluents gazeux et plusieurs systemes ont ete mis au point a cet effet mais on a en outre mesure, en donnees comparables, leur degre d'efficacite. On est ainsi en mesure de proceder, du point de vue economique, a un examen critique des differentes caracteristiques de fonctionnement en ce qui concerne la consommation d'energie, les depenses relatives a l'adsorption, le cout de l'encombrement, les problemes de corrosion et d'autres aspects du fonctionnement des appareils. En execution d'un contrat conclu avec le Laboratoire d'epuration de l'air de l'Universite d'Harvard, la Commission de l'energie atomique des Etats- Unis a entrepris la realisation d'un programme d'evaluation en collaboration avec les diverses entreprises ou personnes privees auxquelles la Commission a octroye des contrats. Cette etude a deja permis de determiner quels sont les facteurs a prendre en consideration pour dresser un schema des couts et analyser ceux-ci; certaines conclusions preliminaires seront ulterieurement formulees. Le memoire donne en outre un apercu des autres etudes economiques qui ont ete effectuees, aux Etats-Unis, sur certains procedes ou applications particuliers. (author) [Spanish] En este trabajo, el autor enuncia las normas basicas a las que ha de ajustarse el control de los efluentes gaseosos y en forma de particulas en las siguientes esferas: produccion de materiales para reactores, separacion de isotopos, elaboracion de elementos combustibles, recuperacion de combustibles y funcionamiento de reactores. Existen asimismo casos (produccion de berilio y zirconio, por ejemplo) en los que ciertos materiales nucleares no radiactivos dan origen a efluentes toxicos o nocivos que deben tambien ser evacuados sin incurrir en gastos excesivos. El autor describe con cierto detalle los factores que influyen en el precio de costo y en los gastos de funcionamiento de los equipos de depuracion de gases, asi como los diferentes sistemas utilizados en los Estados Unidos. Naturalmente, los problemas que plantean los efluentes gaseosos han sido abordados y resueltos mediante varios tipos de dispositivos, pero el rendimiento de estos ha podido medirse en terminos comparables. Por lo tanto, resulta posible evaluar los aspectos economicos relacionados con el consumo de energia, coste de los materiales adsorbentes, necesidades de espacio, problemas de corrosion y otras caracteristicas de funcionamiento de los aparatos. En virtud de un contrato concertado con el Laboratorio de Depuracion del Aire de la Universidad de Harvard, la Comision de Energia Atomica de los Estados Unidos ha iniciado un programa de evaluacion en cuya ejecucion cooperan diversos laboratorios y contratistas de la Comision. En la memoria se enumeran los factores basicos que se han de tener en cuenta para definir y analizar los costos y se presentan algunos resultados preliminares. Asimismo, se describen otros estudios de caracter economico llevados a cabo en los Estados Unidos sobre el empleo de determinados procesos o instalaciones. (author) [Russian] V nastojashhem doklade privodjatsja osnovnye trebovanija po kontrolju za gazovymi i zhidkimi obrazovanijami; jeti trebovanija kasajutsja problem proizvodstva ishodnyh produktov, razdelenija izotopov, proizvodstva toplivnyh jelementov, regeneracii gorjuchego i jekspluatacii reaktorov. Imejutsja takzhe sluchai, kogda neradioaktivnye jadernye materialy, obladajushhie toksichnost'ju ili neznachitel'nym zhidkostnym obrazovaniem (k nim, naprimer, otnosjatsja proizvodstvo berillija i cirkonija), predstavljajut interes, i na nih takzhe dolzhen rasprostranjat'sja kontrol' s umerennymi rashodami. ch Dovol'no podrobno opisyvajutsja faktory, svjazannye s kapital'nymi i jekspluatacionnymi rashodami oborudovanija po ochistke gaza, a takzhe primenjaemye v SShA metody. Udalenie gazov osushhestvljalos' i kontrolirovalos' pri pomoshhi neskol'kih tipov priborov. Odnako jeti meroprijatija provodilis' na sravnitel'noj osnove. Takim obrazom stalo bolee ili menee vozmozhnym sudit' ob jekspluatacionnyh harakteristikah na jekonomicheskoj osnove v sochetanii s takimi problemami, kak potreblenie jenergii, stoimost' adsorbentov, stoimost' pomeshhenij, korrozija i drugie jekspluatacionnye faktory. Komissija po atomnoj jenergii Soedinennyh Shtatov po kontraktu s laboratoriej po ochistke vozduha pri Garvardskom universitete razrabotala programmu ocenki; dlja jetogo Komissija vospol'zovalas' razlichnymi uslugami zavodov i podrjadchikov. V jetom issledovanii namecheny osnovnye faktory, neobhodimye dlja poluchenija dannyh o kolichestvennoj stoimosti; budut predstavleny nekotorye predvaritel'nye rezul'taty. V doklade takzhe daetsja obzor drugih jekonomicheskih issledovanij, kotorye provodjatsja v Soedinennyh Shtatah, v otnoshenii konkretnyh processov ili primenjaemogo oborudovanija. (author)}
