Uranium hexafluoride is the intermediate material of uranium fuel enrichment process, which is widely used in uranium conversion plant, uranium enrichment plant and nuclear fuel element plant[1]. Because of its active chemical properties and its radioactive and chemical toxicity, great importance should be attached to the uranium hexafluoride release accident. This paper describes the possible leakage scenarios for uranium hexafluoride accident. And the general step of the evaluation for uranium hexafluoride leakage accident release source term is given, as well as an application example for the feed facility of a gaseous diffusion plant.
