The design of the first compact AK Process Nuclear system in the United States was performed under the auspices of the Corps of Engineers. U. S. Army, Fort Belvoir, Va. Taking into account that there was virtually nothing on the shelf that could be used, and realizing that the feasibility of such a system first had to be established, demonstration models were built for the various subsystem components which were to eventually go into the complete system. The last and final turbine-compressor set tested as a backup unit for this program was the TCS 670-B. This paper reports the turbine performance obtained from this machine when tested in the Closed Cycle Test Facility (APCEF) at Fort Belvoir, Va.. in 1969. The compressor performance is not included.
