Dear Jagdish,

all serious MSR/MSFR/MCFR concepts are using 3 - circuits to avoid the direct contact liquid salt - water in case of an untightness or failure of the structure. In plenty of reports I found warnings.

Such an untightness would at least let the pressure in the reactor vessel increase to the pressure of the water. The reactor vessel would have to become designed to resist for example 25 or 30 MPa pressure. If the salt pressure is low there is the risk of a steam explosion (I have a test report about lead - water steam explosions) and there might be chemical reactions??? I did not see a test report about the results of such an experiment.

If you have access to a good library I would appreciate it very much if you could look for such a report.
