Abstract: The 10 MW High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (HTR-10) steam generator tubing is the barrier between the primary loop and the secondary loop. Because the pressure of the primary side is less than that of the secondary side, the water and steam will flow into the primary loop if a tube ruptures and react with the graphite fuel elements and the graphite core internals which will result in destruction of the fuel ball, release of radioactivity into the primary loop and increased primary loop pressure. The HTR-10 …
