GASEOUS DISPOSAL SYSTEM
Radioactive gases accumulating in a maritime reactor coolant system should be removed during the degasification operations of the stripping column. The vent gas stream that goes to the purifier section consists of hydrogen, containing some radioactive gases, saturated with water. Adsorption system design criteria is presented to purify this hydrogen feed, removing both oxygen and radioactive gases. Process equipment size limitations require a low-temperature adsorber whose primary purpose is removal of radioactive gas. Water vapor, removed ahead of the adsorber, is returned to the surge tank. Final cycle description, description and specifications for major system components, and installation drawings are given.
