Abstract:

This report presents the detailed design specifications and operating instructions for a prototype evaporation unit with disposable vessel for concentrating radioactive liquid wastes. The design is based on the use of drums as evaporation vessels so adapted that the feed inlet, vapor outlet, steam connections, and liquid level control are detachable permitting the drums to be detached from the rest of the equipment and shipped for land disposal. The complete evaporation unit is portable, automatically controlled and has operating requirements for a supply of 80-150 psi steam for the evaporator, cooling water for the condenser, and electricity for operation of the pumps and controls. Table 1 lists the general specifications of the unit.
