The analysis covers containment thermal hydraulics, releases of incondensable gases, basemat concrete melting, and all other phenomena relevant for the study of containment integrity.
Gaseous zone part can contain liquid particles (fog), and liquid zone part can contain dissolved gaseous particles, including incondensable gases (nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide).
Furthermore, the contents of the MELCOR control volume may be divided between a pool containing water which may be subcooled (liquid) or saturated (two-phase), and an atmosphere containing water vapour, liquid water fog, and incondensable gases.
Intensity of incondensable gases production can be demonstrated by their partial pressures, shown in Figures 11-13.
Temperatures of steam and incondensable gases rise sharply, by 20-80 K, after the water evaporates, Figure 19.
To control and eliminate this condensation from the system, steam traps are established at critical locations to purge condensate and other incondensable gases, allowing the steam to reach its destination in as dry a state as possible in order to perform its task efficiently and economically.
The technology differs from conventional thermal and catalytic cracking processes in that it lacks coking and produces virtually no incondensable gas or olefins.
When functioning properly, steam traps remove condensate and incondensable gases from steam, improving the system's ability to transfer heat.
Special care was taken to purge incondensable substances (once before every one-day test).
The steam generated should be available at the client's point of use in the correct quantity, at the correct pressure, clean, dry and free from air and other incondensable gases.
