Fast breeder reactor

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #3943036.

Fluid-cooled fast breeder reactor includes an outer cylindrical boundary wall, a plurality of canless fuel elements and breeder material elements received within the boundary wall and being in an array therein forming a fissionable fuel zone and a breeder material zone coaxially surrounding the fissionable fuel zone, a coolant supply system for applying fluid coolant at uniform pressure to the entire cross section within the cylindrical boundary wall, and flow guide devices extending substantially horizontally and disposed at different levels one above the other within the breeder material zone which coaxially surrounds the fissionable fuel zone, means for elastically securing the flow guide devices at alternate levels within the breeder material to the boundary wall, the flow guide devices at the levels intermediate the alternate levels being spaced by an annular gap from the boundary wall.
