Abstract : A detailed description of the design and construction of a 5.5-kw water boiler at site Y is given. A 14 percent enriched uranyl nitrate solution in-water is used as the reactor and moderator. The 13.5 liters of solution, containing 870 g of 25, is held in a 1-ft-diam stainless-steel sphere. The tamper consists of a BeO core surrounded by graphite. A thermal column is connected to one side of the tamper. The operation and performance of the boiler are described.
