Issued thermometers in reactor2 indicate 208℃ and 134℃

There are 2 thermometers indicating the rapid increase of temperature in reactor2. After Tepco labelled them as “Broken” they indicated the drop of temperature but they started indicating the increase of temperature again.

(cf, Tepco temporarily stopped updating the plant parameters of reactor2 including the temperature data [Link])

At the moment of 11:00 of 1/21/2013, they are indicating 201.5 and 133.3℃.

At 11:00 of 1/20/2013, they marked the highest reading, 208 and 133.8℃.

Les thermomètres douteux du réacteur 2 indiquent 208 ℃ et 134 ℃

Il y a 2 thermomètres qui indiquent une augmentation rapide de la température dans le réacteur 2. Après que Tepco les ait estampillés comme “cassés” ils ont indiqué une re-descente de la température mais ils ont recommencé à indiquer qu’elle augmentait ensuite.

(cf. Tepco a temporairement arrêté de mettre à jour les paramètres usine du réacteur 2, dont les températures [Lien])

En ce moment, au 21 janvier 2013 à 11:00, ils indiquent 201,5 et 133,3 ℃.

Hier, 20 janvier 2013 à 11:00, ils indiquaient la plus haute mesure, 208 et 133,8 ℃.

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.
