Molten-salt reactors appear to have substantial promise as advanced converters. Conversion ratios of 085–09 should be attainable with favorable fuel cycle costs, with U valued at $12/g. An increase in U value by a factor of two or three ($10–$30/lb. U 3 O 8, $75/SWU) would be expected to increase the optimum conversion ratio. Converter reactor definition: a nuclear reactor for converting one fuel into another, esp one that transforms fertile | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples.

The Space time, tau, is obtained by dividing the reactor volume by the volumetric flow rate entering the reactor. Space time is the time necessary to process one volume of reactor fluid at the entrance conditions. This is the time it takes for the amount of fluid that takes up the entire volume of the reactor to either completely enter or completely exit the reactor.
