The Stable Salt Reactor: Transforming the promise of the molten salt fuel concept into a viable technology

Figure 1. Maximum temperature of fuel salt and tube wall for a 10 mm diameter tube at different fission power levels. The key conclusions are that high power density can be achieved without the fuel reaching its boiling point of ~1600°C but that even at high fuel temperature, the tube remains close to the temperature of the coolant
