NS SAVANNAH, STUDY OF FEASIBILITY OF CONTINUOUS LEAKAGE MONITORING OF THE CONTAINMENT VESSEL
The report concludes that some assurance of uniformity of helium concentration is required to assure proper workability, and that the compressed asbestos gaskets in the main access openings may leak helium more readily than air. Helium pressurization of containment vessel will cause controlled leakage which can be monitored for radioactivity. An equipment and piping schematic is given.
