The SCWO reactor is constructed from Hastelloy C-276 and has an internal volume of 480 cm3. The vessel has been ASME certified for a maximum allowable working pressure of 40.7 MPa at 550 °C. Four thermocouples and a Raman probe are inserted into the reactor to provide near real-time measurements of reactant concentrations. In this test configuration, the oxidizer is injected axially into the reactor vessel once the supercritical conditions are attained.
