Mechanisms Engineering Test Loop Facility

Visit Facility  
Argonne’s METL facility supports development of next-generation components and workforce for sodium fast reactors.
The Mechanisms Engineering Test Loop (METL) facility, established in 2010, is an intermediate-scale liquid metal experimental facility that provides purified R-grade sodium to various experimental test vessels to test components that are required to operate in a prototypical advanced reactor environment. Experiments conducted in METL significantly assist the development of advanced reactors.
