Laboratory tests of four molten salts (Binary; Hitec, Hitec XL and ternary lithium) as HTF were performed. Finally, Hitec ternary salts (53%KNO3+ 40%NaNO2 +7%NaNO3) were selected and characterised. Also, the necessary thermodynamic and hydraulic balances were developed for a complete definition of the loop’s parameters and simulation of the results. Different prototype configurations of the loop prototype and of its components were studied:
