Ultrasonic wave reflection intensity of the wall of borehole drilled from bottom of the East Access Shaft in the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory, Hokkaido, Japan, was obtained using an ultrasonic scanner (USS). In this paper, we compared results of USS observation with core logging data including core observation, optical digital scanner (ODS) observation, and result of Needle Penetration Index (NPI) tests. The results indicated that ultrasonic wave reflection intensity had a good correlation with other observation results. USS observation and NPI tests are useful techniques for determination of detailed rock mass classification.

Liquid hydrogen is employed as a cold neutron moderator material at the spallation neutron source of Materials and Life science experimental Facility of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). From January 2015, it became observable that the differential pressure between heat exchangers and an 80 K adsorber (ADS) in a helium refrigerator system increased with operating time. In November 2015, the differential pressure rise became more significant, leading to degrade the refrigerating performance in cooling liquid hydrogen. In order to investigate the cause of the abnormal differential pressure rise between the heat exchangers and the ADS, we carried out visual inspection inside the heat exchangers and analyzed the impurities contained in the helium gas. Unfortunately, we could not identify the impurities causing the performance degradation, but observed a trace of oil in the inlet piping of the heat exchanger. Based on investigations of the abnormal events occurred in the refrigerators with similar refrigerating capacity at other facilities, we took measures that cleaning the heat exchangers with Freon and replacing the ADS with new one. As a result, the differential pressure rise phenomenon was removed to recover the performance. We have detected oil from the Freon used for cleaning the heat exchangers and at a felt supporting charcoal packed in the ADS. In particular, oil was accumulated in membranous form onto the felt at the entrance side in the ADS. The amount of oil contained in the helium gas was about 10 ppb or so, less than the design value, in the helium refrigerator. However, the oil accumulated onto the felt in the ADS through long operating period may cause abnormal differential pressure rise, leading to the performance degradation of the helium refrigerator. Further study is needed to specify the cause more clearly.

We have synthesised the research results from Mizunami/Horonobe URLs and geo-stability projects in the second mid-term research phase. It could be used as technical bases for NUMO/Regulator in each decision point from sitting to beginning of disposal (Principal Investigation to Detailed Investigation Phase). High quality construction techniques and field investigation methods have been developed and implemented and these will be directly applicable to the National Disposal Program (along with general assessments of hazardous natural events and processes). It will be crucial to acquire technical knowledge on decisions of partial backfilling and final closure by actual field experiments in Mizunami/Horonobe URLs as main themes for the next phases.

Performance degradation of helium refrigerator was occurred for liquid hydrogen circulation system of J-PARC high intensity neutron source since 2015. In order to find the cause of performance degradation of helium refrigerator, we investigated the impurities in helium gas and accumulated oil in inside cold box components by quadrupole mass spectrometer and organic solvent extraction. The measured impurities and accumulated oil were less than design value. We collected 143g of total amount of accumulated oil from heat exchanger and adosorber, which was corresponded to estimated value from 10 ppb of oil contamination in helium and accumulated operation period. However, we only could find out that accumulated oil like coating film on top surface of felt, which was used to hold the active charcoal in adsorber. We report detailed measurement results of impurities, accumulated oil, etc., to find the cause of performance degradation.

Performance degradation of helium refrigerator was occurred for liquid hydrogen circulation system of J-PARC high intensity neutron source since 2015. During cause investigation of performance degradation of helium refrigerator, we found out that accumulated oil like coating film on top surface of felt, which was used to hold the active charcoal in adsorber, might cause pressure difference in adsorber. We performed cold nitrogen gas flow test in the felt accumulated oil and found out that frozen oil under cold nitrogen flow caused the pressure difference.

Liquid hydrogen (20 K, 1.4 MPaG) is employed as a cold neutron moderator material at the 1 MW spallation neutron source of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). The cryogenic hydrogen system, combined with a helium refrigerator, was adopted to generate a liquid hydrogen circulation flow (185 g/s). Since January 2015, a pressure drop gradually increased between heat exchangers HXs) and an adsorber (ADS) in the helium refrigerator for each operation, causing the refrigerator performance degradation. The performance of helium refrigerator could be recovered as a result of countermeasures focused on accumulated oil removal, such as cleaning the inside HXs and exchanging the ADS at 2016 summer shutdown, however the detailed cause is still in doubt. On the other hand, a long run stable operation could be secured over 175 days in 2018. Just end of long run operation, a first high-intensity-beam injection with 1MW beam power was also carried out for one hour aiming to confirm the refrigerator performance according to design requirement.
