Abstract: An Aerosol Test Facility (ATF) has been designed, fabricated, assembled and tested for the fast reactor safety studies. ATF mainly consists of an aerosol chamber, a plasma torch for the production of aerosols of fuel and fission product equivalent materials, a sodium combustion cell for the production of sodium aerosols, aerosol measurement apparatus, and auxiliary systems such as water cooling, air flow, gas flow, pneumatic control, vacuum, and material handling systems. The systems involved in ATF are individually tested and integrated. In this paper, the details of various systems of ATF and the aerosol characteristics of coolant (sodium) and fission product (strontium) are described.
