Description/Abstract:
This data is referring to a incident on April 25, 1985, at 11:10 a.m. Two maintenance mechanics were cutting into the south drain mainfold in the scale room when a small amount of UF6 was released from the line. The line had been purged and both mechanics were wearing respirators. Health Physics took an air sample which was negative for uranium at 11:40 a.m. The maintenance employees and one operator were requested to leave urine samples as a procedure to document the incident. The sample results were below the Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant (ORGDP) Initial Action Level of 0.050 mg/1 for uranium in urine. There is a table included with air sample results taken by Health Physics.
