Tritium is contained 34 times the amount of total gamma nuclides in desalinization apparatus

Tepco is running the water circulation system to purify. However, it only filters gamme nuclide, beta ones remain the same.

They release only the data of the gross amount of beta nuclides. However, the data of tritium is separated for some reason.

Though some of the data is missing, it was comparable to the total amount of gamma nuclides in the process to enter desalinization apparatus.

The results are like these below. Tritium is contained over 34 times the amount of total gamma nuclides.

Also, the tritium data from the sample taken on 3/20/2012 was concealed in the data published on 3/26/2012. [Link]

They must have obtained the data but did not publish until one month later after the measurement.

The desalinization apparatus is located after cesium filters. The total gamma nuclide might be more than 1/34 times of tritium before cesium filter section, but because the tritium data is missing in that process, it is impossible to compare the amount of tritium and gamma nuclides.

  1. FUKUSHIMA DIARY – Le tritium représente 34 fois le montant total des radio-nucléides gamma dans l’appareil de désalinisation
    Par Mochizuki, le 27 mai 2012

    Tepco utilise le système de circulation de l’eau pour la purifier. Toutefois, il ne filtre que les nucléides émetteurs gamma, les bêta restent les mêmes.

    Ils ne publient que les données brutes des bêta nucléides. Toutefois, les données du tritium sont distinguées.

    Bien que certaines données soient manquantes, c’était comparable au total des nucléides gamma du processus entrant dans l’appareil de désalinisation.

    Les résultats sont ceux ci-dessous. Le tritium est 34 fois plus abondant que le total des nucléides gamma.

    De plus, les résultats du tritium de l’échantillon pris le 20 mars 2012 ont été tenus secrets dans ceux publiées le 26 mars 2012. [Link]

    Ils ont forcément eu ces données mais ils ne les ont publiées qu’un mois après les mesures.

    L’appareil de désalinisation est situé après les filtres à césium. Le total des nucléides gamma pourrait être plus que le 1/34e du tritium avant la section des filtres à césium mais, parce que les données sur le tritium sont manquantes dans ce processus, il est impossible de comparer les proportions de tritium et de nucléides gamma.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
