Abstract

As a candidate for an innovative system generator for fast-breeder reactors, a heat exchanger with direct-contact heat transfer between a melted alloy and water was proposed. In this study, the effect of pressure on the heat-transfer characteristics and the required degree of superheating of the melted alloy above water-saturation temperatures are evaluated during the direct-contact heat-transfer experiment by injecting water into Wood's alloy. As a result of the experiment, the product of the degree of Wood's alloy superheating above the water-saturation temperature and the depth of the feed-water injection point is constant for each pressure. This constant increases as the pressure rises.
