NRC: Uranium Conversion

Uranium Conversion After the uranium ore concentrate is produced at the mill (where it becomes uranium oxide or "yellow cake"), it is packaged in 55 gallon drums and sent to the uranium conversion plant. At the conversion facility, the yellow cake is processed and is then reacted with fluorine to create uranium hexafluoride (UF 6).Uranium, in the chemical form of UF 6, is suitable for use in

Design Knowledge and Design Change Management

The operating lifetime of a nuclear plant spans several decades. During this time, the plant may undergo design changes as a result of experience feedback, new knowledge or requirements, and safety reviews. To ensure that safety remains optimised, these changes must be carried out with a full understanding of and without compromising the design intent.
