Tepco “Steaming area of reactor3 is 18~25℃ by thermography on 7/20/2013”

According to Tepco, the atmospheric temperature of of the top floor of reactor3 was 18 ~ 25 ℃ by infrared thermography.

They observed something like “steam” in that area.

The measurement time was 12:39 ~ 14:40 of 7/20/2013. The background temperature was 21.4 ℃.

Tepco concluded it was within the background range.

Tepco : “la zone du panache de vapeur du réacteur 3 est entre 18 et 25 ℃ d’après une thermographie du 20 juillet 2013”


Selon Tepco, la température ambiante au dernier étage du réacteur 3 est entre 18 et 25 ℃ selon une thermographie infra-rouge.

Ils ont observé quelque chose comme “de la vapeur” dans cette zone.
Le relevé a été fait le 20 juillet 2013 entre 12:39 et 14:40. La température autour était de 21,4 ℃.
Tepco en conclut que c’est dans la fourchette ambiante.

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.
