The figures denoted by 37000-fuel below form a Historical and Pictorial Record of Canada s Power Reactor Fuel Bundle Design and Development , edited by R.. Page and A.. Langdon, photography by C.. Baskin, CRNL.. This pictorial record of Canada s power reactor fuel bundles was prepared to historically record the evolution of the power reactor fuel over the years.. No one report issued over the years has been able to describe in detail the various changes that these pictures portray.. It should be noted that the record does not include WR-1 type fuel or special irradiation of assemblies.. A picture speaks a thousand words.. 1093 x 1293.. 198 KB.. End-Plates of the First 3 Inch Diameter Fuel Bundles.. This is a photo of the end-plates of the first 3 inch diameter fuel bundles.. These were the first 19 element fuel bundles built in Canada and irradiated in the E-20 loop (now U-2) in the NRU reactor.. They had to have a diameter of 3 inches to fit in the thick wall pressure tube installed in the E-20 loop to commission it.. As the knowledge of the material properties of Zircaloy-2 was not well known at that time, the wall thickness was increased to be conservative.. The bundles were assembled by screws as the method of welding the end-plates had not been developed.. (circa 1959-60).. 1402 x 782.. NPD-7 Element End View.. This is an end view of one of the first NPD 7-element fuel bundles.. They were assembled by riveting the elements to the thick end-plates.. Later Tungsten-Inert-Gas (TIG) welding was used and later resistance welding to thinner end-plates, thus improving the neutron efficiency of the fuel.. 1224 x 1209.. 152 KB.. NPD-7 Element Riveted.. This NPD 7 element riveted bundle is in its classic autoclave black.. 1396 x 1089.. This end plate on the NPD 7 is now assembled by TIG welding to a thinner end plate.. 832 x 890.. 74 KB.. NPD-7 Element T.. Welded.. In some colour photos the rusty colour on the surface of fuel bundles is from endurance testing in the lab and comes from the iron oxide from the carbon steel piping, even though the bundles rested in a Zircaloy pressure tube.. 1140 x 744.. 70 KB.. NPD 19 Element End View.. The end view of a NPD 19 element assembled by TIG welding.. 1104 x 1099.. 135 KB.. NPD 19 Element.. The 19 elements are spaced by two wires wrapped around each elements and spot welded to the sheaths, one turn per length of element.. 1384 x 679.. 82 KB.. Douglas Point 19-Element Wire Wrap.. The Douglas point 19 element bundles were wire wrapped but the helix around the element was doubled.. Thicker wires were attached at each end to act as bearing pads so the bundles could slide through the pressure tubes with minimum wear to the tubes.. 1390 x 710.. 86 KB.. An example of the DP 19 element bundle covered in the iron oxide and showing the extra wire pads which are partially ground to a flat surface contoured to fit the pressure tube.. 1119 x 776.. 66 KB.. NPD and DP 19 Element Wire Wrap.. A comparison of the NPD DP 19 element bundles.. Note that the DP bundle now assembled by resistance welded of end plates to the elements.. 1284 x 1103.. 154 KB.. AMF Brazed Twisted Tape 19 Element.. During the development of the wire wrapped 19 element bundles for Douglas Point, there was growing concern of the possibility of inter-element fretting of the thin.. 015 in.. thick fuel sheaths.. A study was launched to come up with different ways of spacing the elements and also to delete the end plates.. The following bundles are an illustration of what were considered.. The first example is the twisted tape bundle for so-called better mixing.. The center element was made strong enough to take the fueling machine loads and the outer elements were recessed for the fueling machine side stops.. Did not graduate.. 1336 x 651.. 78 KB.. Welded-Belly Banded AMF Bundle.. Another design during this period was held together by belly bands and used welded spacers.. AMF stands for American Machine and Foundry who was contracted to produce Uranium metal fuel for NRX and NRU Research reactors at Chalk River..  ...   big enough to warrant continued operation nor to justify the funding of continued development.. In addition, G-1 experienced control problems (related to coolant voiding and the use of direct cycle heat transport system) and serious service water system corrosion problems.. Hence, the plant was shut down and decommissioned.. 2444 x 1643.. 487 KB.. Early Wire Wrap 37 Element.. As a backup design to the 28 element Pickering bundle, a 37 element was proposed.. This was a hand built solid steel bundle with mechanical wire wrap.. The 37 element was later developed for the Bruce and 600 Mwe reactors.. 1267 x 1124.. 116 KB.. Gentilly-1.. B W of Gentilly -1 Boiling Light Water 18 element fuel bundle.. 1387 x 753.. Bruce 28 Element Bundle.. nitially it was thought that the 28 element bundle would meet Bruce requirements but when the design of the reactor was uprated, it was necessary to develope the Bruce 37 element, to meet the channel power requirements.. Note the staggered plane of bearing pads at end of the bundle to meet Bruce Channel requirements.. 1372 x 1007.. Bruce 37 Element Bundle.. The Bruce 37 element had minor differences from the other 37 elements that were developed.. The end caps were squared and the bearing pads were staggered at each end of the bundle.. 2288 x 1389.. 322 KB.. Bruce 37 Element Bundle End View.. The end view of the Bruce 37 element bundle.. Note the grounding electrode marks of the resistance welder.. 940 x 948.. Bruce 37 Element Bundle with Hands.. This photo gives a perspective of the size of the Bruce 37 element bundle relative to the man’s gloved hands.. The bundles weighed approx 50 lbs and were 49.. 5 cm long and 10 cm in diameter.. 1105 x 811.. 99 KB.. Bruce Booster End View.. The Bruce booster rods were designed to extend the window of the period shut before the Xenon poison prevented reactor startup.. They were manufactured from enriched uranium Zircaloy alloy which was co-extruded with Zircaloy.. The six 18 element bundles in an assembly was held together by ferrules and belly bands and strung together on a central structural tube.. They had limited use in Bruce and were withdrawn from service.. 1093 x 1047.. Bruce 37 Element Bundle and Booster.. The comparative sizes of a Bruce Booster bundle and the 37 element bundle.. 1005 x 1074.. 125 KB.. Bruce Booster Rod Assembly.. This drawing of the Bruce Booster Rod Assembly demonstrates how it is assembled into a complete rod of six bundles.. 2156 x 2740.. 564 KB.. Gentilly-2 600 MWe Reactor 37 Element Bundle.. The Gentilly 2 600 MWe reactor 37 element bundle differed from the Bruce 37 in that the end caps were conical to accommodate the fueling machine side stops and the end bearing pads were not staggered.. When the Bruce 37 and the 600 MWe 37 were irradiated together, this irradiation was paid for by the Common Programme between Ontario Hydro and AECL.. This programme grew into the CANDEV (CANDU Development) programme funded by the utilities and AECL.. This was later formalized into the CANDU Owners Group (COG) programme of all the nuclear utilities, this supported and funded common development programmes.. The 600 MWe 37 element fuel bundle is been used in the folowing reactors: Gentilly-2, Quebec; Point Lepreau, New Brunswick; Cordoba, Argentina; Cernavoda, Romania; four reactors at Wolsung, South Korea; and two in China.. 1374 x 703.. 120 KB.. Gentilly-1 with CST, Pickering 28 Element, Bruce 37 Element, Gentilly-2/600 MW(e) Prototype.. A comparison of the Bruce booster bundle with the power reactor fuel bundles for Pickering A B, Bruce A B 37 element and the Gentilly-2 600 MWe reactors.. 1397 x 883.. Bruce Fueling Machine.. 1492 x 1182.. 210 KB.. Fuel Engineering Coat of Arms.. The coat of arms is protected by AECL Proprietary and Final Preliminary Draft.. The shield is divided into quadrants by red tape.. Superimposed on it is a bastard bundle.. The upper left quadrant represents the engineering terms of fuel behaviour.. The upper right quadrant represents terms developed in manufacture of fuel.. The lower left quadrant represents terms of heat transfer and corrosion.. The lower right quadrant represents the mystical chemical symbols of the coolant chemistry.. Above the shield is the Omnipresent bull moose of our founder Dr.. Ara J.. Mooradian.. Superimposed is a bird cage representing a fuel carriage.. Above which is the loop rampant and unstable.. Underneath the shield is the banner burnt at both ends by Burnup and Burnout.. Upon which the motto is inscribed ‘Caveat Emptor’ - ‘Let the buyer beware’ or ‘If it fails do not blame us!’ Below which rests ‘The never completed final report’.. 1195 x 1736.. 253 KB.. Double Length Bundle.. There was always the question of double length bundles as the fueling machines magazines were two bundles long.. I always had great doubts of it’s practicability.. Late in the programme a couple of bundles were built.. The dimensional stability of the bundle was poor due the long elements.. There was a large problem in trying to find a means of making a rigid plane in the center plane of the bundle to improve the stability of the elements.. The handling of the 100 lb.. bundle presented too many problems both in manufacture and at the stations.. It was not developed further.. 992 x 1286.. 25-Ton Flask over NRU Research Reactor.. The 25 ton flask is used to remove irradiated fuel strings from the U-2 and U-1 loop test sections in the NRU research reactor at Chalk River.. 1154 x 1443.. 241 KB.. J-Rod Flask over NRU Research Reactor.. The NRU reactor was the first reactor in the world to use on-power fueling.. That was way back in the late 1950 s.. It is still operating as of August 2001 but it is reaching the end of its useful live and needs replacing.. All the power reactor fuel bundles were tested for performance in this reactor, either in the U-2 or U-1 light water cooled loops..
