I saw a crowdfunding project to raise 300k for the manufacturing of a pump testing demo for the SEALER the other day.
Quote:
For SEALER we intend to apply surface alloying of austenitic stainless steel for production of fuel cladding tubes. Aluminium bearing ferritic alloys appear to be an adequate solution for heat exchanger tubes.
The final major challenge in terms of materials is that of the lead pump impeller. This particular component is subject to wear as a result of high relative velocities between the heavy liquid metal and the impeller vanes. In order to obtain a license for operating SEALER we must build and operate a lead pump demonstration facility, where several possible impeller materials will be tested under real operating conditions over several years.

A Th-20%LEU fuel could cost less due to lower quantity of LEU. The control rods could also be reduced.
