JAEA has kept up a data-base system of operation and maintenance experiences of the HTTR. The objective of this system is to share the information obtained operation and maintenance experiences and to make use of lessons learned and knowledge into a design, construction and operation managements of the future HTGR. More than one thousand records have been registered into the system between 1997 and 2012. This paper describes the status of the data-base system, and provides suggestions for improvement from four experiences: (1) performance degradation of helium compressors; (2) malfunction of reserved shutdown system in reactivity control system; (3) maintenance experiences of emergency gas turbine generators; and (4) experiences of the Great East Japan Earthquake. These experiences are extracted from the system as important lessons learned to be expected to apply for design, construction and operation managements of future HTGR.

In the HTTR rise-to-power test which was performed from April in 2000 as phase 1 up to 10MW, nitrogen gas remained in the air cooler which release the heat to atmosphere. This residence nitrogen gas causes the reduction of the thermal performance of the air cooler. So, it was impossible that heat generated reactor core could not remove when reactor operated full power operation. A mockup test was carried out to investigate the occurrence mechanism of the residence nitrogen gas. From a result of the mockup test, we clarified that the marked wave rise in the water pressurizer and the melting velocity of the nitrogen gas into the pressurized water is thought to be higher than expected. Therefore, we installed a hollow type plate, multi-hole type plate and so on in the water pressurizer. As a result, it was confirmed that no residence nitrogen gas in the air cooler during rise-to-power test and normal operation. Consequently, the hollow type plate and multi-hole type plate were effective for prevention of the residence nitrogen gas in the air cooler. This paper describes the results of the mockup test and the improvement of the water pressurizer.

High-Temperature engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) built by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has commonly used reciprocating compressor to extract helium gas and discharge helium gas into primary/secondary coolant helium loop from helium purification system. Rod-seal structure of the compressor is complicated from a prevention coolant leak standpoint. Because of frequently leakage of seal oil in operation, Rod seal structure isn't as reliable as it should be sustainable in the stable condition during long term operation. As a result of investigations, leakage's root is found in that seal were used in a range beyond limit sliding properties of seal material. Therefore a lip of the seal was worn and transformed itself and was not able to sustain a seal function. Endurance test using materials testing facility and verification test using a actual equipment on candidate materials suggest that a seal of fluorine contained resin mixed graphite is potentially feasible material of seal.

In High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR), the rated thermal power of 30MW, the generated heat at reactor core is finally dissipated at the air-cooler by way of the heat exchangers of the primary cooling system, such as the intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) and the secondary pressurized water cooler (SPWC). The heat exchangers in the main cooling system are required the heat exchange performance to remove the reactor-generated-heat of 30MW under the condition of reactor coolant outlet temperature of 850 $$^{circ}$$C/ 950 $$^{circ}$$C. Therefore, the heat exchanges are required to satisfy the design criteria of heat exchange performance. In this report, heat exchange performance of the SPWC in the main cooling system was evaluated with the rise-to-power-up test and the in-service operation data. Moreover, evaluated value is compared with designed one, it is confirmed that the SPWC has required heat exchange performance.

Environmental radiological monitoring around JNC Tokai works

Nakano, Masanao; Isozaki, Tokuji; Takeishi, Minoru

Koden Giho, (21), p.15 - 23, 2005/09

The regional environmental radiation monitoring and the dose calculation for the public were performed for the past 25-year operation of the Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP). For the environmental monitoring, various kinds of terrestrial and marine samples including air dust, surface soil, polished rice grain, leafy vegetable, milk, seawater, seabed sediments, fish, shellfish and seaweed were collected in the surrounding environment of the TRP. Radionuclides such as $$^{3}$$H, $$^{14}$$C ,$$^{90}$$Sr, $$^{131}$$I, $$^{137}$$Cs and $$^{239,240}$$Pu in the environmental samples were determined by radiochemical methods. However, they showed no significant short-term increase or long-term accumulation of radionuclides discharged from the TRP. Therefore, the public dose was evaluated by the mathematical models using the discharge data of radionuclides and the meteorological data. The estimated annual effective dose for the public was about 0.1% of the annual effective dose limit recommended by the ICRP.

From a viewpoint of heat leakage, there were two incidents during HTTR power-rise-tests. One was a temperature rise of the primary upper shielding, and the other was a temperature rise of the core support plate. Causes of the both incidents were small amount of helium flow in structures. For the temperature rise of the primary upper shielding, countermeasures to reduce the small amount of helium flow, enhancement of heat release and installation of thermal insulator were taken. For the temperature rise of the core support plate, temperature evaluations were carried out again considering the small amount of helium flow and design temperature of the core support plate was revised. By these countermeasures, the both temperatures were kept below their limits.
