Abstract

Fluorocarbon fluids (FCF) are considered as an alternative to water-steam in the energy conversion circuit of fast reactor with lead coolant enabling the working pressure in the circuit to be reduced without a loss in efficiency. In the event of an emergency pressure loss in the fluorocarbon circuit, the energy effect on the adjoining items will be smaller than in case of pressure loss in a water circuit. The in-pile experiments gave positive results.
