Provision for cooling the top end of a suspended vessel, such as the pressure vessel of a nuclear reactor. [LMFBR] Against the top shield diameter of 12.9 m in reactor, roof slab diameter in the facility measures ϕ6 m with overall height (1.8 m) being same as in reactor. The diameter of 6 m for reactor vessel/roof slab in the experimental facility is arrived at based on overall cost of the facility viz., a viz., its influence on the accuracy of results.

A nuclear reactor, formerly known as an atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain reaction.Nuclear reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in nuclear marine propulsion.Heat from nuclear fission is passed to a working fluid (water or gas), which in turn runs through steam turbines. The closest to the essential features of the present invention is the upper protective overlay nuclear reactor cooled with a large rotary tube with biological protection and located it a small rotary tube with biological protection and channel for cargo handling (see I.
