NCSC-106: Disposal and Examination of components from the Raleigh Research Reactor.



NCSC-106
TO: Dr. Herman Roth
FROM: Clifford Beck
DATE: July 19, 1955
RE: Disposal and Examination of components from the Raleigh Research Reactor.

Persuant to our several discussions relative to the failure of the fuel
cylinder of the Raleigh Research Reactor, we have dismaulted the assembly and
arranged to send it to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in accordance with the
arrangements you have made for examination of the core and disposal of the
contaminated components.

One of our staff members will accompany the shipment of reactor
components from Raleigh, we are sending the material on one of our trucks, and
in accordance with instructions and advice from Mr. McAulderf, of your office.
A separate letter will contain details of the shipping arrangements.

I list below the specific operations involved in handling the various
materials sent, and the data which seem to us should be obtained from
the components.
