Abstract:

A dynamic pump loop system, designed and constructed at this facility, was operated for 20 hours in a non-nuclear environment to establish base line data on the functional fluid which was a high temperature jet engine lubricating oil. The system was then subjected to operation in a nuclear environment. Dynamic and static oil samples were taken periodically during both runs to determine physical and chemical property changes of the test fluids. Average bulk oil temperature within the static and dynamic reservoirs was 300 F. System operation and fluid characteristics, with the exception of increased coking tendency at 700 F, were satisfactory during the pre-irradiation run. System operation was also satisfactory during the 23 hours irradiation run. However, changes were noted in all measured properties of the irradiated fluids. Author
