There are three research reactors of different type in Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology of Tsinghua University (INET), they are Swimming Pool Shielding Reactor (SPSR), 5MW Nuclear Heating Reactor (NHR-5) and 10MW High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor (HTR-10). The interim storage facilities for Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) are applied in these reactors except NHR-5, the SPSR adopts the wet storage for its SNFs, HTR-10 accepts the dry storage due to the ceramic structure of its SNFs. The practical storage conditions including SNFs features, space distribution, SNFs transportation, shielding measures and the safety analysis results including radioactive activity, shielding effect, the total amount of radioactive product leakage to environment are demonstrated in this paper.
