Only 1 measuring point remains available to measure temperature in RPV of reactor2

Having the last one broken, we will not know the temperature inside of RPV2.

On 9/4/2012, Tepco reported the unusually high rate of temperature increase in reactor2. [Link]

They determined the issued gauge to be reference thermometer by 9/10/2012. Because Tepco kept determining other thermometers to be reference usage when they indicated high temperature, now only one point remains available to measure temperature in RPV of reactor2.

Only 1 measuring point remains available to measure temperature in RPV of reactor2

Tepco hasn’t updated the progress of new thermometer installation in reactor2.
Now we can know the temperature of only one point inside of RPV2.

Tepco has 6 measuring points available in RPV of reactor1 and 9 in reactor3 supposedly.



Français :

Il ne reste qu’un seul point de mesure de la température dans l’enceinte du réacteur 2

Si le dernier tombe en panne, nous ne serons plus en mesure de connaître la température dans le RPV2.
(RPV = enceinte primaire de confinement.)

le 4 septembre 2012, Tepco a rapporté d’inhabituelles montées de température dans le réacteur 2. [Lien]

Ils ont déterminé le 10 septembre 2012 la sonde devant servir de thermomètre de référence . Parce que Tepco a enlevé les autres thermomètres pour savoir s’ils peuvent servir de référence après avoir indiqué de très hautes température, maintenant il ne reste qu’un seul point pour mesurer la température dans le RPV du réacteur2.

Only 1 measuring point remains available to measure temperature in RPV of reactor2Tepco n’a pas mis à jour l’évolution de l’installation des nouveaux thermomètres dans le réacteur 2.
A présent, nous ne pouvons connaître la température qu’à partir d’un seul point dans le RPV2.

Tepco a 6 points de mesure disponibles dans le RPV du réacteur 1 et soi-disant 9 dans celui du réacteur 3.


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.
