Abstract:This paper describes the mechanisms of the mass transfer of “loose” corrosion deposits in the primary circuits of water-cooled reactors. The revealed “peaks” of the amount of suspended corrosion particles in the reactor transients are reported are reported. Two ways of using this effect are suggested: first, for monitoring the amount of suspended corrosion particles in the circuit and the thickness of their deposits formed on the surfaces of the primary circuit equipment; second, for removing “loose” deposits containing radionuclides from primary circuits, i.e., for “non-chemical decontamination technology.”
