Sample text

The salt and zeolite are combined and processed in a V-mixer where they are heated to 500 °C for approximately 15 h. In this operation the salt is occluded into the zeolite structure. Twenty-two V-mixer experiments were performed by ANL with nonradioactive materials. The V-mixer is also used to mix 25 wt % glass with the saltloaded zeolite. The nominal batch size is 50 kg, but an 80-kg batch was also successfully tested by ANL. The glass/salt-loaded zeolite mixture is loaded into stainless-steel cans for processing through the HIP.
