Abstract

The paper contains the technology and its modifications, which are based on transfer of metal beryllium into chloride and its purification from tritium and cobalt. The processing technology is based on selection of the optimal parameters of the facility and its capacity according to the calculations of process characteristics for various consumptions of the reagents. We consider the possibilities to provide required temperature modes for the sections, where beryllium is transferred into chloride and its reverse conversion, and to define purity degree by measuring the non-radioactive isotopes of hydrogen and cobalt. Potentials of the alternative technologies were considered as well.
