Standard Practice for Dissolution of UF6 from P-10 Tubes

Significance and Use

4.1 Uranium hexafluoride is a basic material used to prepare nuclear reactor fuel. To be suitable for this purpose the material must meet criteria for uranium content, isotopic composition and metallic impurities in Specification C787 and C996. This practice results in the complete dissolution of the sample for uranium and impurities analysis, and determination of isotopic distribution by mass spectrometry as described in, for example, Test Methods C761.


1.1 This practice covers the dissolution of UF6 from a P-10 tube to provide solutions for analysis.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific safeguard and safety precaution statements, see Section 8.
