Why molten salt reactors are popular- plus long article link

  
 

Molten salt reactors

These use molten fluoride salts as primary coolant, at low pressure. Lithium-beryllium fluoride and lithium fluoride salts remain liquid without pressurization up to 1400°C, in marked contrast to a PWR which operates at about 315°C under 150 atmospheres pressure. In most designs (not the AHTR) the fuel is dissolved in the primary coolant.

Here is the big long article link that most of the previous articles came from:
