最近の軽水炉圧力容器材の照射損傷研究では中性子照射効果の焼鈍による回復効果の研究が行われており、JMTRを用いた照射試験と照射済試料の焼鈍さらに焼鈍後の照射効果の研究が計画された。このため、材料試験炉部では照射後に試料の焼鈍と交換を行い、その後、さらに再照射が可能なキャプセルを開発した。本再照射キャプセルの開発には、交換可能な内部キャプセルから延びた熱電対のシース線の接続を着脱可能にするための気密コネクタと、試料交換のためのキャプセル底部プラグに使用するメカニカルシールの技術開発が必要であった。開発・製作した再照射キャプセルによる照射試験は、照射されたキャプセルのカナルでの取扱いやホットセル内での遠隔操作による試料交換を計画通り実施でき、再照射の際の試料温度も目標範囲を満足するなど、開発目標を達成することができた。

Studies on the irradiation damage of the material of the RPV are inevitable for the LWR. Recently, the researches of annealing effect on the irradiation damage of RPV material were extensively carried out using specimens irradiated in the JMTR of the JAERI. As the next step, an annealing test of irradiated specimens and re-irradiation of annealed specimens were planned. The aim of the test is to evaluate the effect of annealing by comparing the damage of irradiated specimen, its recovery by annealing and the damage after re-irradiation. For the re-irradiation test of this study, JAERI developed a new capsule in which the specimens can be exchanged before and after annealing, and, re-irradiated afterward. The development of the capsule consisted of the design and fabrication of airtight connector for thermocouples and mechanical seal device which was fit to remote handling. Remote operation procedures for handling the radioactive capsule and for exchanging specimens were carefully performed. The results of the re-irradiation proved that the development was technically successful.
