(5)Effect of natural convection prevention plate in primary sodium pump
Keywords:Monju, primary sodium pump, circumferential temperature difference, natural convection prevention plate
To prevent this risk for Monju primary sodium pump, convection prevention plates are installed between the inner and outer casing of the pump. Monju plant data indicates the plates decrease the circumferential temperature difference, and then no contact arose between the pump shaft and the bearing.
