Maintenance activities in chemical processing facility, 1; Renewal of driving unit of negative pressure control valves

Kobayashi, Yuki; Takahashi, Tetsuro; Shinozaki, Tadahiro; Ogasawara, Koji; Koizumi, Kenji; Nakajima, Yasuo

Nihon Hozen Gakkai Dai-7-Kai Gakujutsu Koenkai Yoshishu, p.161 - 166, 2010/07

The negative pressure control valve is reliable apparatus which has been used in many nuclear facilities. In recent years, there are some troubles on those valves in CPF (Chemical Reprocessing Facility) by the aged deterioration because the valves were kept using for more than 25 years after facility had operated. Therefore, we have been carrying out renewal of driving units of the valves to assure performance of negative pressure control function and to keep stability of operation of the facility. In this presentation, we report knowledge provided through the renewal work, such as the renewal procedure, the deterioration situation of components and the cause of troubles.

Recovery of U-Pu alloy from MOX using a pyroprocess series

Kitawaki, Shinichi; Shinozaki, Tadahiro; Fukushima, Mineo; Usami, Tsuyoshi*; Yahagi, Noboru*; Kurata, Masaki*

Nuclear Technology, 162(2), p.118 - 123, 2008/05

A series test of pyro-process was carried out to recover U-Pu alloy from MONJU MOX pellets. In the Li-reduction step, the reduction behavior of MOX was similar to that of UO$$_{2}$$. In the electrorefining step, the separation factor between U and Pu was 5.7 for the combination of reduced MOX anode and liquid cadmium cathode, which is almost comparable to the value in the previous studies. For the material balance, approximately 98% of U and 103% of Pu were detected in the electrodes or molten salt after the electrolysis with respect to the initial amounts in the anode or molten salt. Considering the analytical error of ICP-AES, these values are reasonable. The remained amount of U in the anode was slightly larger than that of Pu due to the re-oxidation. The U-Pu alloy ingot was successfully formed by distillation of Cd.

Integrated experiments of electrometallurgical pyroprocessing with using plutonium oxide

Electrometallurgical pyroprocessing is a promising technology to realize actinide fuel cycle. Integrated experiments to demonstrate electrometallurgical pyroprocessing of plutonium oxide in continuous operation were carried out. In each test, 10 to 20 g of PuO$$_{2}$$ was reacted with Li reductant to form metal product. The reduction products were charged in the anode basket of the electrorefiner with LiCl-KCl-UCl$$_{3}$$ electrolyte. With using the anodes, deposition of uranium on the solid cathode was carried out, when PuCl$$_{3}$$ concentration was low. After Pu/U ratio in salt electrolyte was increased enough, plutonium and uranium were recovered simultaneously on the liquid cadmium cathode. By heating up the deposits for distillation of the salt and the cadmium, U metal or Pu-U alloyed metal were obtained as residues in the crucible. It was first result to demonstrate the recovery of metal actinides in the continuous operation of pyroprocessing of oxide fuels.

Recovery test of metal product from oxide fuel by electrometallurgical pyroprocess

Kitawaki, Shininchi; Shinozaki, Tadahiro; Fukushima, Mineo; Hijikata, Takatoshi*; Usami, Tsuyoshi*; Koyama, Tadafumi*

Proceedings of International Conference on Nuclear Energy System for Future Generation and Global Sustainability (GLOBAL 2005) (CD-ROM), 5 Pages, 2005/10

Electrometallurgical pyroprocess is a key innovative technology to realize closed actinides cycle with keeping high proliferation-resistance and economy. JNC and CRIEPI have been carrying out the integrated tests of electrometallurgical reprocessing of metal and oxide Pu-containing fuel to demonstrate whole process in continuous operation. After intensive cold test to confirm the functions of experimental apparatus and the test conditions, recovery test of actinide metal product from actinide oxide fuels has started as a first series of the integrated tests. In this report, result of the recovery test is described to elucidate the material flow in the process.
