- On the 1600--2400 shift, May 12, 1961, the delayed neutron monitor on KER Loop 1 gave a high coolant activity signal indicating a possible fuel element failure in this loop. KE Reactor was shut down immediately thereafter. This report is being written to summarize the events pertinent to the KE Reactor scram and to discuss the results and significance of data from the analyses of coolant samples taken from the KER Loop-1 System.
