Integrated fast reactor of the liquid metal cooled type

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #4032399.

A cooling circuit for the main reactor vessel is limited on one side by the main vessel and a flow-reversing baffle shell and on the other side by the flow-reversing baffle shell and a counter-baffle shell which surrounds the primary vessel. The cooling circuit is supplied with a fraction of the cold liquid metal which is present within an intervessel space between the counter-baffle shell and the primary vessel. An annular chamber is located above the cold liquid metal and filled with an inert gas at a pressure which maintains the gas/liquid metal interface below the top of the flow-reversing baffle shell.
