Electrolytic oxidation of zirconium in nitrate solutions by M. R Bomar( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zirconiurn alloys used in the fabrication of nuclear fuel elements can be disintegrated and converted to insoluble oxides by electrolytic treatment in concentrated nitrate solutions. This reaction shows promise as a technique for reprocessing nuclear fuels clad with Zircaloy-2. For a particular applied voltage, nitric acid achieves the highest rate of attack, but the reaction can be carried out at rates of 2 mg/(cm²)(min) or greater in either 7.5M sodium nitrate or 2.3M aluminum nitrate. A reaction rate of 7 mg/(cm²) (min) can be easily attained in either 8M nitric acid or 7.5M sodium nitrate. The rate of reaction is a function of the temperature and tho applied voltage. An as-yet unsolved problem is the carry--down of uranium with the insoluble zirconium oxide product. (auth)
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 4 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)
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 4 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)

Evaluation of the metal-to-metal contact basket-type electrolytic dissolver by H. T Hahn( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performance of an electrolytic dissolver based upon the metal-metal contact principle was investigated. Interchangeable baskets of niobium, titanium, and titanium clad on the interior surface with platinum-- 10 percent rhodium were used. Other modifications such as inclination, a cone insert, a trough, and a tapered annulus were adopted with some success. Continuous operation was demonstrated at the 200-ampere level by promoting dissolution of the lowest element. The problem of discontinuity of operation which is encountered with a niobium basket was eliminated by the use of baskets made of titanium or lined with noble metal. Even with the latter materials, a gradually declining current occurs due to deteriorating contacts. Protection of the contact, as with a mercury pool, provides steady service, but this approach is limited by the inability to remove the heel from the protective layer. An analysis was made of the resistances encountered and an extrapolation of performance with full-scale elements attempted. For the conditions chosen, an average current of approximately 2000 amperes appears attainable in a full-scale dlssolver. (auth)
Effect of alloying constituents on aluminum dissolution rates by R. D Fletcher( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In studies of the effect of alloying elements on the rate of dissolution of Al in mercury-catalyzed nitric acid, it was observed that Co, Ni, and Si present at concentrations of 1 to 2% have significant passivating effects. Fe was slightly catalytic. Passivation due to Si was partly overcome by contacting the passive alloy with active, high-purity Al. Increased catalyst concentration improved the rates when Ni and Si were present. Neither approach was effective when Cu was the passivating element. For application to nuclear fuel reprocessing, it is suggested that for minimum reprocessing costs the potentially passive Al alloys not be used in fuel elements or that, failing this, electrochemical activation techniques be applied at the processing plant.

Testing of pumps for use in nitric acid-alumina slurry service by E. J Bailey( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two different types of centrifugal pumps were used successfully for pumping a nltric acid-alumina slurry produced in the off-gas scrubbing system of the Waste Calcining Facility. Adequacy of a vertical, suspendedshaft, centrigugal, double-volute pump with non-wetted bearings and packing was demonstrated in plant-scale tests. A vertical deep well turbine-type pump, with the submersed bearings made of boron carbide working against Type 440-C hardened stainless steel, also proved to be acceptable for this service in pilot plant tests.
