Because its fuel does not require cladding or impervious sleeves to retain fission products and because heat is removed by radiation, very loose tolerances can be used in the manufacture of GBSR elements. Furthermore, the long fuel burn-up capabilities of the matrix fuel serves to further reduce GBSR unit fabrication costs. (4) High plant factor: There are two advantages which the GBSR THE GBSR 45 possesses with regard to plant factor. Its ability to refuel during operation obviates the need for shutdown for this sometimes lengthy operation.

6, and a summary of the reactor plant characteristics for a nominal 300-Mwe plant, as presently conceived, are presented in Table! The active core consists of three annular regions: a central boiling region, an intermediate superheater region, and an outer reheat region. A graphite reflector completely surrounds the active core. The core is a pattern of 324 square graphite columns, 22 in. on a side, penetrated by vertical pressure tubes and separate fuel channels as shown in Fig. 7. The graphite columns are guided and supported individually and are separated by gas gaps.
