Development of inspection technique in opaque liquid metal coolant is one of the important issues to ensure the safety of Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR). Performance tests of an Under Sodium Viewer (USV), which was developed to detect an obstacle in the reactor vessel (RV) of LMFBR Monju, have been carried out. The ultrasonic sensors and reflectors are located across the core inside of the Monju's RV. The USV can detect an obstacle existing in between the core top and the Upper Core Structure (UCS) bottom by identifying differences of echo signals. This report describes the USV performance tests. In the tests, the reference echo signals under various conditions were accumulated and the signal to noise ratio successfully exceeded the target value. Measured signals clearly differed from with and without an obstacle. These experimental results show the performance of the USV for detecting an obstacle in the specified place.

Performance test of under sodium viewer in Monju

Aizawa, Kosuke; Togashi, Yoshinori; Sasaki, Koei; Chikazawa, Yoshitaka; Fukuie, Masaru*; Jimbo, Noboru*

Inspection technique in opaque liquid metal coolant is one of the important issues for the safety warranty of Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) core. A performance test of Under Sodium Viewer (USV) which was developed to detect obstacles in reactor vessel of LMFBR Monju was carried out. The ultrasonic sensors and reflectors are located across the core inside the Monju reactor vessel. The USV detects the obstacle between the core top and the bottom of Upper Core Structure (UCS) by differences of echo signals. This reports showed the USV performance test in Monju before power operation. In the test, the basic echo signals in various conditions were accumulated and signal to noise ratio met with the design value. Measured signals with and without obstacles showed difference clearly. Those experimental results showed that basic performance of the USV to detect an obstacle between the core and UCS.

The Preconceptual Design phase of the ASTRID Project ended late 2012, the main goal was to evaluate innovative options. It is now followed by the AVP2 phase planned until the end of 2015 whose objectives are both to focus the design in order to finalize a coherent reactor outline and to finalize by December 2015 the Safety Option Report. The CEA acts as the industrial architect of the project. In 2014, Japan which participates now in the design studies and also in Research and Development in support of the ASTRID Project and VELAN are the latest partners to join the Project. The next important milestone is at the end of 2015 with the release by the Project team of a convincing and coherent Conceptual Design file.
