Moderator off-gases and fission products which diffuse from the fuel are continuously removed from the helium by a closed purification system.

B. Moisture Removal Continuous removal of the moisture by passing the steam through moisture separators is another method by which the efficiency of the turbine can be maintained. Turbine manufacturers have been testing a number of moisture separating devices that will maintain a satisfactorily low level of moisture in the steam. The internal moisture separators being tested take advantage of the centrifugal forces in the rotating turbine blades to separate the moisture from the steam. The blades have milled grooves on the leading edges running the length of the blades.

STOKER header system, mentioned above, enables flow to the leaking tube to be shut off and the tube to be plugged. Steam or water which leaks into the core is vented to a vapor suppression system to prevent pressure build-up in the core containment tank. Approximately 6% (74) extra fuel channels are provided so that the loss of a fuel channel because of a tube leak does not reduce the design rating of the reactor. Spares are based on an extrapolation of failure rates experienced by conventional boilers.
