Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are studying the melting process of room-temperature nuclear waste glass feed as it is charged onto a high-temperature (1150C) molten glass in a fused-silica crucible. This study uses a small-scale melter to simulate the melting process in the Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant and the data gathered will help researchers build a mathematical model for the large melter design.
