High flux materials testing reactor hfr petten: Characteristics of facilities and standard irradiation devices. rev. The High Flux Reactor in Petten, Noord-Holland, was shut down on Thursday after a quantity of contaminated water leaked into a crawl space.

According to operator NRG, the reactor was turned off safely and there is no danger to the environment, reports. The leak has now been fixed. It arose during planned work. The employees who performed the work were checked for radioactive. The High Flux Isotope Reactor (or HFIR) is a nuclear research reactor located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, United ing at 85 MW, HFIR is one of the highest flux reactor-based sources of neutrons for condensed matter physics research in the United States, and it provides one of the highest steady-state neutron fluxes of any research reactor in the.

The reactor vessel of the High Flux Reactor (HFR) in Petten has been fabricated from Al O alloy grade with a maximum Mg content of wt. The vessel experiences large amount of neutron fluences (notably at hot spot), of the order of 10 27 n/m 2, during its operational life.
