The structure of models and a description of the AEROSOL-LM/Na module, which is intended for simulating the transport and behavior of impurities sodium coolant and fission product aerosols in a normal operating regime of a reactor and in beyond design basis accidents, are presented. The characteristic features of the module are: accounting for the basic behavior of dissolved impurities in the sodium coolant, simulation of the dynamics of multi-component and polydisperse aerosols in the gas cavity of the first loop of the reactor, functional coupling with other modules of the code (thermal hydraulic and fuel), and simulation of the behavior of fission products as a function of the running state of the reactor installation.
