- Radiolytic gas concentration in the HRT as a function of operating power and temperature have been calculated for the conditions of Run 18. The partial pressure of the radiolytic gas was estimated for the various conditions. The maximum total vapor pressure (the maximum summation of the radiolytic gas partial pressures excess oxygen partial pressures and D2O vapor pressure) was found to exist at the core and blanket outlets for all avcrage temperatures greater than 250 C. Below 240 C at some recombination rate constants and power levels, the maximum pressure will be highest at the heat exchanger exit. In the calculations the transfer of radiolytic gas between the core and blanket systems was neglected. The simplification is equivalent to saying that the radiolytic gas transfer between the systems is equal. The results of the calculations show that this is nearly true when 60% of the total power is generated in the core. The effect of pump-up in each system was included. (auth)
