Fast reactor technology have been hampered by structural materials development. In particular, the molten lead/lead-bismuth-eutectic attack and dissolve structural alloys. The current lack of a general solution to this problem has been a major impediment to the commercialization of LFRs. A summary of the capabilities of the new lead loop facility at the UNM will be presented. The main objectives of this facility are to design and conduct material compatibility study with molten lead up to 700°C under flowing conditions of 3 m/s.
