Description/Abstract:
This document concerns the 706-D modification project first full level production run. Seventy-three W slugs were dissolved and processed through the new equipment, crud filters, process filters, and ion-exchange purification cubicles. The mechanical failure of a distribution valve in the ion-exchange cubicle spilled the extected product yield, 12,000 curies, into the waste. The waste was subsequently reprocessed in stand-by equipment where 3000 curies was recovered as product and shipped May 21, 1951.
