HFIR Rabbit Irradiation Vehicles

 

The HFIR has three separate facilities for the irradiation of small "rabbit" capsules.
 
Pneumatic Rabbits:
  • Low flux
  • Variable fluence 1020-1023n/m2 E > 0.1 MeV
  • Near room temperature irradiation
Hydraulic Tube (Ht):
  • High flux
  • Variable fluence 1022-1025n/m2 E > 0.1 MeV
  • High temperature irradiation capability
Peripheral Target Tube (PPT):
  • High flux
  • Variable fluence 1025-1026n/m2 E > 0.1 MeV
  • High temperature irradiation capabilities
