A two-loop sodium test facility equipped with independent flowrate and temperature control systems has been put into operation at the Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics (ICMM) in Perm, Russia. The facility is designed to study turbulent mixing in liquid sodium flows of various configurations and different temperatures. The schematic design concepts of the facility and its technical characteristics are described. Tables 1, Figs 5, Refs 22.
