PMTF Computer System

On March 16, 2011, in

The PMTF computer system can perform theoretical modeling and analysis, experimental control and data acquisition, and post-test data reduction and analysis. The system is a heterogeneous network of workstations and PCs. Data- and file-storage units and other peripherals are used for building models, graphically displaying theoretical analyses, design/drafting of mock-up units, and for control and […]

Beryllium High Heat Flux Testing at PMTF

On March 16, 2011, in

Because the high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) coolant loop at the PMTF can control inlet temperatures to the sample while maintaining high working pressures, it is an ideal choice for the fatigue testing of beryllium components. Inlet temperatures as high as 280 °C can easily be maintained. The entire PMTF is a Sandia/DOE environment, safety, and health (ES&H) […]

LIMITS Liquid Metal Flow Loop

On March 16, 2011, in

The EB-1200 or the EB-60 can be connected to a closed coolant loop designed to study flow of molten metals or molten salts in vacuum and has been used for a preliminary study of flowing liquid lithium surfaces inside of magnetic fusion reactors and lithium-helium heat exchangers. The free surface of the flowing liquid can […]
