Paper Abstract

A real-time inspection system has been developed at HEDL for rapid and thorough x-ray inspection of FFTF fuel pins. The FFTF fuel pins consist of sintered UO2 - PuO2 pellets contained in seamless, wire-wrapped 316 SS tubes. Each pin is 0.23 inches OD, and 94 inches long, and is sealed by a cap welded at each end (Figure 1).
