Molten Salt Reactor Technology Information
The interim MSR Technology Information List provides access to the first set of cataloged MSR documents available on OSTI. By downloading the Excel spreadsheet, you will have access to individual links to each legacy file. The file will be updated periodically as we work through the continuing catalog process with OSTI.  Please direct questions through gain.inl.gov.

Molton Salt Chemistry Workshop Report

Video shows a demonstration of replacing the major components of a molten salt reactor mock-up built by ORNL in the late 1950s - early 1960s using remote handling technology.



Published on Oct 14, 2016This film was produced in 1969 by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the United States Atomic Energy Commission to inform the public regarding the history, technology, and milestones of the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE). Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Molten Salt Reactor Experiment was designed to assess the viability of liquid fuel reactor technologies for use in commercial power generation. It operated from January 1965 through December 1969, logging more than 13,000 hours at full power during its four-year run. The MSRE was designated a nuclear historic landmark in 1994. 

Thanks to Y-12 for the collection, preservation and digitization of this and other historic films.
