The objective of this product it to treat waste water produced in the regeneration of ion exchange resins in the treatment of primary circuit refrigerant of PWR reactors.
The effluent from the regeneration of these resins contains all of the previously retained anions and cations, the majority of which are radioactive isotopes from the activation of atoms of irradiated structural materials by neutron flow (60Co, 129I, 131I, 90Sr, 55Mn, 59Fe, 137Cs, 134Cs, 51Cr, etc.).
This water can contain a significant amount of radioactive substances, so its decontamination must be carried out in an effective, controlled and safe manner. Furthermore, and also very importantly, this process also enables the recovery of the boron used in the reactor as a moderator of neutron flow, which is nuclear grade boron.
