Thermal Hydraulics Laboratory

Dr. Mark Anderson

Glove Box Facilities

Used to study thermal energy storage of phase change in materials, salts, metals, etc.

Glove Box

Used to prepare and Fabricate NaK filled pressure transducers for high temperature salt test loops

Flibe Chemistry and Corrosion Glovebox

Used to study flibe chemistry and corrosion. Part of IRP for Molten Salt Reactors. Samples are prepared for testing in MIT reactor.

Flibe Purification Facility

Used to make and chemically purify the salts. By Purifying salts we can control redox potential and reduce corrosion of materials.
