Breeder reactor, nuclear reactor that produces more fissionable material than it consumes to generate energy. This special type of reactor is designed to extend the nuclear fuel supply for electric power generation.

Learn more about the types and history of breeder reactors. A breeder reactor is a nuclear reactor that generates more fissile material than it consumes. Breeder reactors achieve this because their neutron economy is high enough to create more fissile fuel than they use, by irradiation of a fertile material, such as uranium or thorium that is loaded into the reactor along with fissile fuel.

Breeders were at first found attractive because they. Comparison of containment systems for large sodium-cooled breeder reactors book   Some fast breeder reactors can generate up to 30 percent more fuel than they use.

Creating extra fuel in nuclear reactors, however, is not without. S. Seeman and G. Armstrong, Comparison of Containment Systems for Large Sodium-Cooled Breeder Reactors, HEDL-TMEHanford Engineering Development Laboratory, Richland, WA, April CrossRef Google ScholarAuthor: John Sackett.

The results of an international comparison calculation of a large ( MWe) LMFBR benchmark model are presented and discussed.

Eight reactor configurations were calculated. Parameters included with the comparison were: eigenvalue, k/sub infinity/, neutron balance data, breeding reaction rate ratios, reactivity worths, central control rod worth, regional sodium void reactivity, core Doppler Cited by: 2.

Breeder reactors can even use the uranium waste from uranium processing plants and spent fuel from traditional fission reactors, along with depleted uranium from nuclear weapons. Uranium used by light-water reactors is rare on Earth, and its reserves are likely to run out within years.

A nuclear reactor, formerly known as an atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain r reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in nuclear marine from nuclear fission is passed to a working fluid (water or gas), which in turn runs through steam turbines.

Uranium plutonium Comparison of containment systems for large sodium-cooled breeder reactors book is the principal fuel material for liquid metal fast breeder reactors (LMFBR's) throughout the world.

Development of this material has been a reasonably straightforward evolution from the UO/sub 2/ used routinely in the light water reactor (LWR's); but, because of the lower neutron capture cross sections and much lower coolant pressures in the sodium cooled LMFBR's, the.

The International Panel on Fissile Materials released a new research report, Fast Breeder Reactor Programs: History and Status (a pdf copy of the report is here).The report argues that the track record of all fast breeder reactor programs demonstrates that sodium-cooled reactors cannot serve as a major part of the long-term nuclear waste disposal solution.

Symbiotic systems consisting of large-FBR and small water-cooled thorium reactors (WTR) Article in Annals of Nuclear Energy 36(8) August with 58 Reads How we measure 'reads'. A sodium-cooled fast reactor is a fast neutron reactor cooled by liquid sodium. The acronym SFR particularly refers to two Generation IV reactor proposals, one based on existing liquid metal cooled reactor (LMFR) technology using mixed oxide fuel (MOX), the other based on the metal-fueled integral fast reactor.

The experimental work is performed in two facilities: the Large Sodium Fire Facility (LSFF) and the Containment Systems Test Facility (CSTF).

Sodium fire extinguishment tests which verified the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) secondary sodium fire protection system are described and related informaion on sodium burning rates and smoke release. Studies have been made on the costs of various designs of IH X for large commercial fast breeder reactors such as the PLBR.

Beyond the obvious economies of scale, it is expected that further design simplification such as described above will reduce overall IHX costs by up to 50% as compared with direct extrapolation of the original FFT F designs.

The research for technological improvement and innovation in sodium-cooled fast reactor is a matter of concern in fuel handling systems in a view to perform a better load factor of the reactor thanks to a quicker fuelling/defueling process.

An optimized fuel handling route will also limit its investment cost. In that field, CEA has engaged some innovation study either of complete FHR or on the Cited by: 3. A molten salt reactor (MSR) is a class of nuclear fission reactor in which the primary nuclear reactor coolant and/or the fuel is a molten salt mixture.

MSRs offer multiple advantages over conventional nuclear power plants, although for historical reasons, they have not been deployed. The concept was first established in the s.

By virtue of these design choices, the PRISM is able to achieve reactor shutdown, decay heat removal, and postaccident containment cooling completely via passive systems,53 IV.

The author expounds his point of view concerning the comparative advantages and drawbacks of two types of technology for liquid-metal fast-neutron reators: lead and sodium. It is concluded that there are no substantiation and no significant factors justifying forced implementation of a lead-cooled reactor, especially in the existing economic climate in : V.

Sidorenko. In breeder reactor: Fast breeder reactors Proposed fast breeders include gas-cooled fast reactors, which are cooled with helium, and sodium-cooled and lead-cooled fast reactors. Additionally, a supercritical water fast reactor has been proposed that would operate at a supercritical pressure to utilize fluid water that is neither steam nor liquid.

The lead-cooled fast reactor is a nuclear reactor design that features a fast neutron spectrum and molten lead or lead-bismuth eutectic lead or lead-bismuth eutectic can be used as the primary coolant because lead and bismuth have low neutron absorption and relatively low melting points.

Neutrons are slowed less by interaction with these heavy nuclei (thus not being neutron. Sodium Fast Reactors with Closed Fuel Cycle is a valuable reference for industry professionals involved in the construction of fast-reactor power plants, as well as graduate-level engineering students of the design and development of sodium-cooled fast-reactor systems and components.

in nuclear power plants with reactors of 1 MWe being most commonly commercialised today. However, there is currently a growing trend in the development and commercialisation of small and medium-sized reactors (SMRs), i.e.

reactors with effective electric power less than MWe. Molten salt fueled reactors are not as suceptible to corrosion concerns (uranium and thorium reduce chemical reactivity when bonded to flourine). Low operating pressures allow the possibility for multiple small cores rather than one large reactor.

Because the fuel is dissolved within the salt, there is no costs for fuel fabrication. To buy the book ($18 US) and get the full story, go to Amazon or CreateSpace. (Note that the images below do not come from the book). —————-Generic cost comparison between the IFR and LWR (light water reactor) Comparison of fast reactor capital cost with the capital cost of commercial LWRs is not straightforward either.
