Refrigerated helium recirculating loops, along with a closed nitrogen loop using sufficiently pure nitrogen with provisions to avoid progressive oxygen contamination, are considered in this addendum to solve the problem of transferring heat from adsorption beds with an inert fluid, for the retention and disposal of radioactive waste gas. In both of the modifications (recirculated helium cycle and recirculated nitrogen cycle), the process stream remains virtually unchanged, and only the method of extracting the heat from the beds is affected. Process descriptions are given for each cycle, as well as explanations of refrigeration and components. Appendices make up the bulk of the report, giving flow diagrams and equipment layouts for each cycle.
