(a) Packaging (1) Model No.: CHT-OP-TU (2) Description A shipping container for uranium oxide pellets, powder, and uranium-bearing materials. The package is roughly cubical and is approximately 45-inches x 45-inches x 62-inches high.

The package has four internal sleeves in which Oxide Vessels are inserted.

The outer shell of the package is constructed of 11-gauge mild or stainless steel and the space between the outer shell and the sleeves are filled with fire retardant, closed cell phenolic or polyurethane foam.

The sleeves are constructed of 11-gauge mild or stainless steel with an inner diameter of 10-1/4 inches. The sleeves are closed with twelve 1/2-inch-diameter bolts using an outer lid assembly on a 1/16-inch-thick neoprene or silicone gasket. The outer lid assembly is filled with fire-retardant, closed cell phenolic or polyurethane foam.

The Oxide Vessel is constructed of series 300 stainless steel, with an inner diameter of either 6, 7.5, or 8 inches. The Oxide Vessel is closed by eight 1/2-inch-diameter bolts on a 5/8-inch-thick stainless steel lid with a double O-ring seal. The O-ring seal material is either Enclosure 1

PACKAGE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER PAGE PAGES 9288 12 71-9288 USA/9288/B(U)F-96 3 OF 5 5.(b) Contents (1) Type and form of material Uranium-bearing compounds in solid form, heterogenous or homogenous (i.e., pellets and powder). The contents may include up to 1000 grams of polyethylene or other plastics as packaging, waste or impurities per Oxide Vessel (4000 grams per package), provided that:

(1) the total water equivalent of the plastic is less than 1307 grams per Oxide Vessel (5228 grams per package); and, (2) the decay heat is less than 0.068 W/m3. Materials with a decay heat greater than 0.068 W/m3 may not be packaged using hydrogen bearing plastics, and may only use non-hydrogen bearing plastics such as TeflonTM (polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE) or metallic containers. In addition, the contents are limited to:

A. Unirradiated uranium oxide powder enriched to no more than 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope.

B. Unirradiated uranium oxide pellets or a mixture of pellets and powder enriched to no more than 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope.

C. Reprocessed uranium oxide powder enriched to no more than 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope, with limits specified in Table 1.

5. (b)(1) Type and Form of Material (Continued)

D. Reprocessed uranium oxide pellets or a mixture of pellets and powder enriched to no more than 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope, with the limits specified in Table 1.

E. Homogeneous (powder or crystalline form) uranium-bearing materials enriched to 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope in the form of solids, or solidified or dewatered materials.

Uranium compounds must have a ratio of non-fissile atoms to uranium atoms greater than two (2) and the density of these compounds is less than 10.96 g/cm3 (density of UO2). Material such as U-metal, U-metal alloys, or uranium hydrides (e.g., UHX) may not be shipped. Uranium-bearing materials may include oxides, carbides, silicates or other compounds of uranium. Uranium-bearing materials may be moderated by graphite to any degree. Compounds may be mixed with other non-fissile materials with the exception of beryllium or hydrogenous material enriched in deuterium.

Materials with a hydrogen density greater than water must be excluded, except for the allowance provided by Condition No. 5.(b)(1).

F. Heterogeneous (pellets or previously pelletized materials) uranium-bearing materials enriched to 5.0 weight percent in the U-235 isotope in the form of solids, or solidified or dewatered materials.

Uranium compounds must have a ratio of non-fissile atoms to uranium atoms greater than two (2) and the density of these compounds is less than 10.96 g/cm3 (density of UO2). Material such as U-metal, U-metal alloys, or uranium hydrides (e.g., UHX) may not be shipped. Uranium-bearing materials may include oxides, carbides, silicates or other compounds of uranium. Uranium-bearing materials may be moderated by graphite to any degree. Compounds may be mixed with other non-fissile materials with the exception of beryllium or hydrogenous material enriched in deuterium.

The maximum allowable contents heat generation rate is 1.0 BTU/hr/ft3 (10.3 W/m3).

The maximum weight of contents, including the uranium compounds and all packaging materials within the Oxide Vessel, is 402 pounds per 8-inch, 7.5-inch, or 6-inch diameter Oxide Vessel, and a maximum of 1608 pounds per package.

For contents described in Condition Nos. 5(b)(1)(B), 5.(b)(1)(D), and 5.(b)(1)(F), the Oxide Vessel Pellet Shipping Assembly, as described in Condition No. 5(a)(3), must be used within the 8-inch diameter Oxide Vessel. The Oxide Vessel Pellet Shipping Assembly is not required when using the 7.5-inch, or 6-inch diameter Oxide Vessel.
