Type III, high-early strength cement with high C 3 S and lower C 2 S levels, develops strength rapidly as a result of its high C 3 A and tricalcium silicate content. This rapid strength development, however, is accompanied by a high rate of heat production, which may preclude the use of type III cement for massive waste/cement monoliths.

The use of high PFA content grouts to encapsulate intermediate level radwaste by Robert J. Davidson Download PDF EPUB FB2

In very aggressive exposures (twice Class 5), it was found that only the very high PFA content grouts (>90% PFA) exhibited no visible damage after 12 months exposure.

The influence of the additional presence of magnesium chloride appeared to modify the nature of damage occurring, but tended to inhibit it.

A typical chemical analysis is given in Table 1. Carbon is present in PFA in amounts which can be as high as 10% for older power stations and below 3% for modern stations. At Winfrith, PFA has been found to be of use mainly in grouting processes for infilling the voids between solid items of radioactive waste.

Pulverised Fuel Ash (PFA) is combined with Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) powder and water to form cementitious grouts for use in various aspects of nuclear waste encapsulation.

Encapsulation in cement is the favoured method in the UK for disposal of intermediate and low level radioactive wastes. It is usual to use composite cement systems incorporating blast.

the production of low strength grouts containing only PFA and water. PFA grouts can: – reduce the permeability of the ground – increase the shearing resistance and subsequent strength and durability of the ground – fill inaccessible voids.

The benefits of PFA grouts include: Reduced bleeding A low rate of bleeding (typically less than 1%)File Size: 1MB. Intermediate and low level nuclear wastes (ILW and LLW) are routinely mixed with composite cement systems to prepare a waste form suitable for long-term storage or disposal.

These composite waste forms are currently based around the use of Portland cement with high replacement levels of supplementary cementing materials (SCMs) such as blast.

High Level Waste (HLW) is waste where the temperature may rise significantly because of their radioactivity. The design of waste storage or disposal facilities has to take this into consideration.

Less than 1% of all radioactive wastes (by volume) are in the HLW category.
