... changes, and safety upgrades, about 200 metric tons of aluminum clad materials have been in wet storage for up to 8 years. 1 The spent nuclear fuel is primarily irradiated uranium-aluminum alloy or depleted uranium metal fuel clad with a 30-mil type 1100 or 8001 aluminum alloy. After about two years...

... evaluation revealed the presence of an alloy containing nickel and molybdenum in several ingots found on the bottom of the melter and on a drip which had solidified on the electrode sheath. This indicates that a major portion of the electrode assembly was exposed to a temperature of at least 1317 deg C...

..., was greater than 50 mils in 45 days. This exceeded fuel and target cladding thickness of 30 mils. The corrosion of aluminum alloys in high purity water is complex and many of the factors responsible for this corrosion are interrelated. The fuel enters the basin with, in many cases, several mils...
