Liquid Lead Laboratory

Liquid Lead Laboratory (LILLA)

LILLA allows performing mechanical tests in liquid lead with controlled dissolved oxygen concentrations up to 650°C. The laboratory gives the possibility to study liquid metal embrittlement phenomena, other material-liquid lead interactions, and test lead chemistry instrumentation.

Through performance of qualification tests on candidate structural materials for Generation-IV lead cooled fast reactors and for MYRRHA accelerator-driven research reactor, LILLA contributes to feasibility and safety assessments of the heavy liquid metal coolant technology for nuclear applications.
