Ma and Li, 2007 [15] investigated the effect of the injection pressure on an injected heat pump system with an IHX and proposed an optimal injection pressure range for their system.
In secondary sodium system, the sodium coolant flows through four IHX (Intermediate Heat Exchangers).
With on-site recycling using Rubble Master Compact Recyclers, IHX has increased its recycling rate.
The IHX itself, constructed of austenitic stainless steel, consists of an upper and lower tube sheet separated by straight tubes with a central downcomer for incoming intermediate sodium and a riser for outgoing intermediate sodium.
Primary sodium from the hot upper reactor pool, which enters the IHX at 485[Degrees]C (905[Degrees]F) and is cooled to 338[Degrees]C (640[Degrees]F) by the time it leaves, flows into a reactor lower plenum.
The IHX is structurally designed on a faulted basis to withstand the full 7.0-MPa (1000-psig) steam pressure that could reach the IHX during a sodium/water-reaction event in the steam generator.
An interchange heat exchanger (IHX) can be used to preheat the weak desiccant that flows to the regenerator using the hot, concentrated desiccant that leaves the regenerator.
