Abstract : Descriptions are presented of the experimental facilities and equipment to determine solid-liquid and liquid-gas separation efficiencies, materials compatibility, and slurry flow properties. Techniques and equipment for kinetic yield measurement studies and for chemical energy deposition analyses are described. The design of the in-reactor loop is presented. Initial hydroclone tests were made. An alternate production concept involving the use of a boiling reactor, to avoid anticipated fuel separation problems, is being studied. Gas-liquid separation at anticipated loop flow rates has been successfully accomplished. A literature survey of applicable materials compatibility data led to the design of a materials test program utilizing the toroid and materials testing loops. The in-reactor loop functional design is completed. A direct and an indirect method of fission fragment energy deposition measurement were designed. (Author)
