Spacer for nuclear reactor fuel assemblies

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4312705.

Spacer for fuel rods assembled into a fuel assembly for nuclear reactors formed of a grid structure of sheetmetal webs passing edgewise perpendicularly through one another including resilient and rigid contact elements fastened to the sheetmetal webs, each of the fuel rods being supportable by two diagonally opposing three-point contact systems, each of the systems being formed of one of the resilient contact elements and two of the rigid contact elements, the one resilient contact element being centrally disposed, as viewed in axial direction, and the two rigid contact elements being oppositely disposed and being ring-shaped.
