Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 July 2013
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Fissile materials and nuclear fuel technology): 27.120.30
significance And Use:

5.1 Uranium hexafluoride is a basic material used to prepare nuclear reactor fuel. To be suitable for this purpose, the material must meet the criteria for isotopic composition. This test method... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the isotopic analysis of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) and may be used for the entire range of 235U isotopic compositions for which standards are available.

1.2 This test method is applicable to the determination of the isotopic relationship between two UF6 samples. If the abundance of a specific isotope of one sample (the standard) is known, its abundance in the other can be determined. This test method is flexible in that the number of times a given material is admitted to the ion source may be adjusted to the minimum required for a specified precision level.

1.3 The sensitivity with which differences between two materials can be detected depends on the measuring system used, but ratio-measuring devices can generally read ratio-of-mol ratio differences as small as 0.0001.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 7.
