An unexpected explosion occurred in the vent line connecting at the top of a titanium reactor that was used to make a fire-retardant fabric. In this presentation the cause for this accident will be discussed based on the findings in examining samples from the vent line and the results of high-temperature tests.
The Hanford site contains approximately 55 million gallons of radioactive and chemically hazardous wastes arising from weapons production. This paper will present a Bayesian framework to model the probability of tank failures at Hanford and illustrate its use for tanks that are already known to have failed and leaked waste.
The new passivation mechanism in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) process is discussed through theoretical approach in this paper. A corrosion mitigation program was implemented that included the pigging both slug and batch corrosion inhibitors chemistry analysis corrosion rate (CR) monitoring and non-destructive tests.
