Tank Sidewall Coring Demo Success

Tank Sidewall Coring Demo Success

During a core drilling demostration last month, workers successfully removed a 33 feet and 3 inch diameter concrete core in 5 foot sections from a buried wall. The core hole deviation over the entire 33 feet was less than half an inch. Success on this demo provides confidence that the coring approach can be applied to tank A-106 in 2012.

A video from the demonstration last month is available at www.youtube.com/user/ORPHanford#p/a/u/2/uVw06o8CdoM

Sluicer Installed on Tank C-112

The Enhanced Reach Sluicer System (ERSS) was successfully installed in Tank C-112. The ERSS is a medium duty arm with a single high pressure articulated nozzle designed to provide a greater ability to direct sluicing media to tank waste. Installation of the sluicing pump, construction and operational testing are the next steps in the process. Retrieval operations will begin in October.

New Core Sampling Platform

New Core Sampling Platform

Recovery Act-funded work on a new core sampling platform is nearing completion. Nicknamed “the crab” for its crustacean-like legs, the platform houses a drill, x-ray machine, and a rack to hold samples. The 23,000-lb. steel platform requires a crane to lift it into place, yet is so nimble that you can rotate the platform with the force from your hand. The platform will replace aging equipment and also help more accurately sample and characterize tank waste.

Bore Hole Drilling at C-203

Bore Hole Drilling at C-203

Scientists with Washington River Protection Solutions’ Closure and Corrective Measures organization are using a hydraulic hammer unit owned by Energy Solutions to drive angle bore holes beneath C-203 to characterize the surrounding soil.

Workers will push two different bore holes using direct push technology. The first hole is driven to total depth and logged using a gyroscope and geophysical logging instruments. The gyroscope is used to determine the bore hole is following its intended path. Geophysical logging instruments are used to obtain soil characterization information such as gamma and moisture measurements. The second hole is sampled at selected depths. Information from the first bore hole is used to assist in the sample depth selection process.

Upside Down Face?

Upside Down Face?

I'm so used to seeing nuthatches upside down or sideways, It's weird looking at the face upright. It's like some facial features have been put in the wrong spots.
