Long Term Durability Testing of Simulated Iron-Phosphate Nuclear Waste Glass
Durability testing of simulated iron-phosphate nuclear waste glass was discussed. Product Consistency Test (PCT) and Vapor Hydration Test (VHT) were used to study an iron phosphate base glass and a simulated Hanford tank Farm B (TFB) waste loaded iron phosphate glass. It was found that the normalized release values for Na from PCTs with TFB glass ranged from 0.269 to 0.534 g/m2 for 182 and 7 day samples, and iron phosphate base glass composition react quickly under VHT.
