NS SAVANNAH, DESIGN REVIEW OF PURIFICATION SYSTEM

The adequacy of the design criteria, equipment, and method of control for reactor primary loop water purification aboard the N.S. Savannah is determined. Specifically, the review covers: (1) the selection of 1 ppm total solids as the design equilibrium water quality for the primary coolant; (2) the expected life of the demineralizer resins; (3) the adequacy of the pre-critical clean-up procedure; (4) effect of fission product leakage on the capacity of the demineralizer system; (5) equipment design adequacy for demineralizers, effluent filters, and letdown coolers; (6) the adequacy of the piping system design; and (7) the adequacy of system control criteria. Except for specific recommendations outlined for immediate change and for upgrading, it is concluded that the design of the purification system is in accordance with good practice and is expected to operate reliably.
