Evaluation of heat exchange performance for intermediate heat exchanger in HTTR

Tochio, Daisuke ; Nakagawa, Shigeaki  

In High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) of 30 MW, the generated heat at reactor core is finally dissipated at the air-cooler by way of the heat exchangers of the primary pressurized water cooler and the intermediate heat exchanger. Heat exchangers in main cooling system of HTTR should satisfy two conditions, achievement of reactor coolant outlet temperature 850 $$^{circ}$$C/950 $$^{circ}$$C and removal of reactor generated heat 30 MW. That is, heat exchange performance should be ensured as that in heat exchanger designing. In this report, heat exchange performance for Intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) in main cooling system is evaluated with rise-to-power-up test and in-service operation data. Moreover, the applicability of IHX thermal-hydraulic design method is discussed with comparison of evaluated data with designed value.
