EXISTING REMELTING SOLUTIONS FOR LARGE VOLUMES OF CARBON STEEL SCRAP APPLIED TO TREAT METALS CONTAMINATED WITH RADIOACTIVE SUBSTANCES

JOURNAL: 2021, 17, p. 57-59

AUTHOR: I.A. Knyazev

ANNOTATION:
The paper proposes an alternative melting method, namely, the decontamination or reduction of metal radioactive waste volume based on the industrial designs of a plasma-arc furnace. It presents promising design options and technical solutions for the development of a purpose-designed plasma-arc furnace enabling the remelting of carbon steel with a low level of radioactive contamination. The paper recommends most promising process flowcharts and units for the removal of surface scale layers during the decontamination of the steel scrap.
 
Keywords: radioactive waste, radioactive contamination, steel decontamination, induction remelting, plasma arc furnace, descaling.
