NUCLEAR MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR DETERMINATION OF THE PURIFICATION RATE FOR NORMAL OPERATION
The purification flow rate recommended for the NMSR primary loop water is 9830 lb/hr for normal operation. This flow rate is equivalent to 25 gpm at the loop's average operating conditions (508 F and 1750 psia) and 19.8 gpm at the demineralizers operating conditions (110 F and 50 psia). The flow rate is expected to: 1. maintain the radiation level resulting from corrosion product activities and other impurity activities, excluding fission products, which are dissolved and suspended in the water at less than 200 mr/hr near the main primary piping wall 30 minutes after normal reactor shut-down, and 2. maintain the corrosion product impurity level in the primary water at less than 1.0 ppm as FE(sub 3)O(sub 4).
