re: #488 Aceofwhat?

Apparently, the LFTR design wasn’t attractive back in the 60’s and 70’s because it doesn’t produce plutonium for future weapon use as a by-product, and now everyone’s forgotten about it.

What a shame…it looks like an elegant design that can use currently nuclear waste and the thorium that coal miners currently throw away to produce incredibly clean energy…

Uh ho..
So really the design issues comes from the primary coil.. The source in someways doesn’t matter…Generally containing the source is the least of the safety issues..( Well unless you are a Russian turning off the cooling water and turning up the reactor at 3am)
The issue is the primary coil…Primaries transfer heat to the secondary coil.
Primaries are hot..Secondaries are just plain old steam
why do you fill a primary coil with pure..And I mean effen pure water?
This is the water flashed to steam and is hot. the smallest impurity will cause a hot spot and a leak..A primary coil leak is the disaster…
