The dissolution of iron and nickel in dilute aqua regia by Richard Douglas Cannon( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In laboratory studies the dissolution of iron in dilute nitric - hydrochloric acid mixtures shows an apparent reaction order of -0.62 with respect to HCl. No apparent order value for HNO/sub 3/ can be determined over the concentration ranges studied. Nickel dissolutions show apparent orders of 1.4 with respect to the HCl and 4.2 for HNO/sub 3/. Activation energies determined from 50 to 80 deg C are not constant, ranging from l0 to 20 kcal per mole for both metals. (arth)
Containment of iodine-131 released by the RaLa process by G. K Cederberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uncontrolled releases of large amounts of iodine occurred during the early stages of RaLa operation at the ldaho Chemical Processing Plant. A ten- fold reduction in the iodine content of the off-gas was achieved by process modifications, primarily the addition of mercury salts to the acidic process solutions. An additional ten-fold reduction was obtained by installing an activated charcoal adsorption unit in series with the original iodine removal scrubber. The iodine content of particulate entrainment limited the over-all iodine removal efficiency of the revised RaLa off-gas iodine removal system. (auth)
Physical and operational features of a pulsed continuous countercurrent liquid-solids contactor by E. S Grimmett( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physical and operational features of a rapidly pulsed, continuous, countercurrent, liquid- solids contactor are described. The contactor consists of a 2-in.-dia. column containing five contact stages. Solids feeding, contactor operation, and pulsing methods are described. Ion exchange resin flow rates up to 150 lb/hr/ft/sup 2/ and calcined aluminum oxide flow rates up to 300 lb/hr/ft/ sup 2/ were obtained while feeding water at rates up to 2000 lb/hr/ft/sup 2/. Optimum stage design should extend these rates considerably. The effects of pulse frequency and amplitude upon the column flow rate are described. Column ion exchange efficiencies were determined for the systems Cu--Na and Cu--H/sub 2/ at a cationic concentration of 0.1N, Sulfate was the common ion in the Cu--Na system and nitrate ion in the Cu--H/sub 2/ system. Stage efficiencies of greater than 27 to 62% were obtained. HTU values are aiso reported. (auth)
Improved sample bonding and emission with tantalum surface ionization filaments by Paul Goris( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Techniques for conditioning of Ta filaments for improved bonding and emission with a Ta metal powder-Ta/sub 2/O/sub 5/ mixture are described. A porous Ta metal layer is deposited which restricts sample to the filament. Metal- oxide ion emission is enhanced with additional Ta/sub 2/O/sub 5/ to the porous layer. Reduction of fractionation through action of liquid Ta/sub 2/O/sub 5/ is discussed in particular for Sr+ emission. Use of conditioned filaments for rapid U concentration analysis with a single-filament mass spectrometer is emphasized. (auth)
Remote dissolution and analytical program for irradiated thorium( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remote dissolution and analytical program for irradiated thorium is given. The aluminum jacket on the slug was dissolved with 6M nitric acid and 0.005M mercuric nitrate. After a water wash, the thorium dissolution was accomplished with concentrated nitric acid made 0.04M in hydrofluoric acid. Weighing, dissolving, and sampling were done remotely in the multicurie cell at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant. Handling techniques for weighing and dissolving the slugs are described. Transferring and sampling apparatus as well as sampling techniques for the dissolved material are discussed. Analytical data obtained are tabulated. Abstracts of analytical methods for uranium concentration and isotope ratio, aluminum, thorium, cesium, and cerium are given. (auth)

A bench-scale natural-recirculation dissolver by E. E Erickson( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A natural-recirculation dissolver closely approaching a stirred-tank reactor in behavior was developed, and its feasibility was demonstrated in the mercury-catalyzed dissolution of aluminum in nitric acid, It was designed to utilize the heat of reaction and evolution of gaseous reaction products for recirculation and mixing. The dissolvent was 5-molar nitric acid, containing mercury in concentrations from 10/sup -4/ to 10/sup -3/ molar as a catalyst. Dissolution rates for 1/7 scale, simulated MTR fuel elements of 2-S aluminum ranged from 0.25 to 4.0 mg/(cm/sup 2/)(rain), depending on the catalyst concentration in the dissolvent and the dissolvent flow rate. For comparable catalyst and acid feed concentrations, dissolution rates, based on unit net superficial velocities, were nearly 25 times those for dissolution of randomly- packed flat plates in a pilot plant, continuous, flooded dissolver.

Analog solution of a model of the sources of elutriatable fines in the fluidized bed calcination process by Earl S Grimmett( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model is proposed which depicts the sources of elutriatable fines in the fluidized bed calcination process as being in two major groups, spray drying mechanisms and attrition mechanisms. Based on this model, equations are derived which express the rate of change of the concentration of a chemical tracer material in the elutriated fines, following introduction of the tracer into the feed and following its removal from the feed. This system has been simulated on an analog computer, and by matching the computer simulation to results from an actual calciner run, the rates of generation of fines by each of the two groups of mechanisms has been determined; the same technique results in an estimate of the amount of these fines remaining in the fluidized bed. Agreement between postulated results and results of actual experimental tests lends credence to the usefulness of this analytical technique. (auth)

Tests of a vapor-space feed nozzle for calcining aluminum nitrate solutions in a fluidized bed by G. E Lohse( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was conducted to determine the performance of a vapor- space feed nozzle which sprayed aluminum nitrate solution on the surface of a fluidized bed calciner. Results indicate that this type of feed system is satisfactory for calcining aqueous wastes from the processing of spent aluminum- type nuclear fueIs. Process and product control were achieved by adjusting the volumetric ratio of the air to the liquid fed to the nozzIe. The results obtained at various operating conditions are compared with those from a pneumatic atomizing nozzle submerged below the surface of the fluidized bed. (auth)
Mixing and evaporation in a packed vessel by G. K Cederberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In connection with an evaluation of the operability of a 36-inch diameter remote evaporator at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant that was to be packed with a corrosionresistant neutron-poison packing for criticality control, an investigation in a 30-inch diameter vessel proved that air sparging effectively mixes solutions. The data showed that at similar spar;e rates the presence of the packing caused an increase in the time needed for complete mixing. The investigation showed that solutions are readily evaporated in spite of the presence of packing in the tank. (auth)
An economic evaluation of ultimate disposal of liquid radioactive wastes by the fluidized bed calcination process by J. I Stevens( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The costs of fluidized bed calcining of the acidic and re-acidified forms of Purex and Thorex wastes were determined. The wastes were assumed produced by a chemical-processing plant recovering unburned fuel from 1500 tons/ yr of U converter fuel at a burnup of 10,000 Mwd/ton and 270 tons/yr of Th converter fuel at 20,000 Mwd/ton. Also, investment costs for storage of the calcine in vented, air cooled, annular bins installed in underground concrete valuts were determined. The cost of fluidized bed calcining was determined at processing rates of 45, 80, and 75 gph for solids storage in bins varying from 3 to 22 in. thick and installed in underground concrete vaults containing 4, 12, 20, and 40 nested annular bins, each nest with an overall diameter of up to 12.5 ft. Aging had negligible effect on costs, except as it permitted thicker bins to be used. The lowest cost, 0.47 x 10/sup -2/ mills/kwh/sub e/, was for processing acidic Purex and Thorex wastes at 75 gph with storage in an underground concrete vault contnining 40 of the 12.5-ftdia. nested bin arrays. And the highest cost, 2.9 x 10/sup -2/ mills/kwh/sub e/, was for processing reacidified Purex and Thorex wastes at 45 gph with storage in an underground concrete vault containing 4 nested bin arrays.

Plant tests on the decomposition of nitrous oxide over a heated rhodium catalyst by L. T Lakey( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plant scale tests were conducted to determine the feasibility of decomposing the nitrous oxide in dissolver off gases with a heated rhodium catalyst. The test results from two fixed bed reactors operating on off gases containing between 14.2 and 19.8 vol.% nitrous oxide show that the nitrous oxide content can be reduced to less than 0.05% with catalyst bed outlet at 1300 to 1500 deg F and space velocities at 472 to 700 hr⁻¹. Rate constants appear to be comparable to those reported in the literature. Suggestions are made for the design of a permanent installation. (auth)
Phase transformations in calcination of nitrates of aluminum, stainless steel, and nichrome by H. J Eding( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Earlier studies showed that low concentrations of boric acid inhibit the formation of alpha alumina in the fluidized calcination of aluminum nitrate wastes. Studies designed to determine the optimum concentration of boric acid and the relative effectiveness of phosphoric acid were performed by heating synthetic mixtures at moderate pressure; results indicared that they were equally effective at the same molal concentration. Differential thermal analysis of mixtures showed that the boric acid reacted with alumina below 183 deg C. Extraction of boric acid from selected samples indicated that the B was bonded (probably in a random manner, as in glasses) to the alumina rather than to Na, Additlon of fission products was studied, and no unusual effects were found. Transformation studies on calcination of stainless steel nitrates indicate that alpha iron oxide is formed even with the addition of moderate amounts of addltives such as boric acid, phosphoric acid, aluminum nitrate, or combinations of these. Rare earths are the most effective additive found. Similar studies on nichrome wastes indicate that nickel oxide (crystalline) is formed even with additives. The studies include heating of synthetic mixtures at moderate pressure, differential thermal analysis, and use of a laboratory fluidized calciner. (auth)
