Reactor2 temperature decreasing since the volume of injection water was increased
Two of the thermometers of reactor2 have been showing the increase of temperature since last December.
On 1/7/2013, Tepco labelled the 2 thermometers as “broken”. However, they kept on indicating the increase of temperature regardless of Tepco’s intention. (cf, 2 thermometers of reactor2 started indicating increasing temperature again [URL])
At 11:00 1/23/2013, Tepco increased the volume of water injection. Since then, the broken thermometers have been showing the decrease of temperature for some reason.
Deux des thermomètres du reactor2 avaient montré une augmentation de la température depuis décembre dernier.
Le 7 janvier 2013, Tepco avait étiqueté ces 2 thermomètres comme “cassés”. Ils ont quand même continué à indiquer l’augmentation de température sans tenir compte des intentions de Tepco. (cf. Les 2 thermomètres du réacteur 2 recommencent à indiquer une augmentation de température [Lien])
Le 23 janvier 2013 à 11:00, Tepco a augmenté le volume d’eau injectée. Depuis, les thermomètres cassés ont indiqué une baisse de la température.
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.
