Salt Loops | Molten Salt Reactor

Research Highlight | Salt Loops

A FLiNaK mixture of salt was circulated for the first time in the Liquid Salt Test Loop (LSTL)

This work is part of the ORNL-Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP) Fluoride Salt-Cooled High-Temperature Reactor CRADA. Researchers focused on developing design guidance for future salt pumps. They used the existing salt loop pump as a case study. Continue Reading.
