- The Hanford reactors have undergone numerous hydraulic changes which have increased production output either directly, as in the cases of raising bulk limited power levels, or indirectly, such as reorificing to accommodate major advances in pile flattening efficiencies. Unfortunately, whenever major hydraulic changes occur, Panellit pressures that had been prevalent also change, sometimes to the extent that efficient pile operation is affected. Therefore, when hydraulic changes occur, an investigation is generally made to seek a new orifice and/or venturi design that will not only alleviate the Panellit problem but also utilize the available reactor process water in the best possible fashion. The method presented in this document discusses the approach made at DR reactor. This method should, with few changes (mainly in limit requirements), apply to determining the optimum orifice size at any reactor. Each reactor flow system has individual perculiarities which necessitate a separate analysis to determine the optimum venturi size. There is some probability that one venturi size may represent an optimum selection for groups of reactors, notably the old reactors, K reactors, and C reactor. To some extent this has already been done in the form of the 0.283 venturi, 0.310 venturi, etc.
