New melter technology development in Tokai vitrification facility

Aoshima, Atsushi ; Ueno, Tsutomu; Shiotsuki, Masao

In TVF, concentrated high radioactive liquid waste produced in TRP has been vitrified since 1995. Because of very corrosive condition of melting glass, design life of a melter is limited five years and it requires interruption of plant operation and generation of high radioactive solid waste for melter change. To improve this situation, prolongation of melter design life time by increasing corrosion resistance of structural material is required strongly. Effective removal of noble metal from a melter is also required because accumulated noble metal cause shortening lifetime of a melter. So, JAEA tried to develop a melter which equipped with ability of high corrosion resistance and control temperature distribution for noble metal easy drain out. Mechanical removal technology of remained noble metal rich glass also used if necessary. Low temperature glassing technology and advance removal of noble metal from concentrated high radioactive liquid are also be studying.
