Content: The Fluoride salt-cooled High-temperature Reactor (FHR) is a new reactor concept that combines a liquid salt coolant and high temperature graphite-matrix coated coated-particle fuel originally developed for High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactors (HTGRs). The base-line liquid salt coolant was originally developed for use in molten salt reactors (MSRs) where the fuel is dissolved in the salt. The FHR operates at low pressure and has excellent heat transfer characteristics with superior safety features. Design temperature of FHR coolant is about 600-700
