Nuclear Agency: Fukushima Daiichi No. 3 Reactor Fuel Rods Exposed

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Readings from pressure and radiation monitors are conflicting with data showing that nuclear fuel rods are exposed at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant's No. 1 and No. 3 reactors, as the there may be problems with the water-level gauges, an official at the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said Sunday.

The official also said that Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501), the operator of the plant, has been able to release pressure in reactor No. 3 but that he's concerned that its fuel rods may be damaged. There are no major problems with reactor No. 2, he said.

Another official said that he believes that sea water is continuing to be pumped into the core of reactor No. 1 and its surrounding reactor vessel. Despite seawater being pumped in, the water gauges show the water level falling from between a minus between 150 centimeters and minus 200cm from the top of the fuel rods in reactor No. 3 at 0400 GMT to between minus 180cm and minus 220cm at 1055 GMT and unchanged at minus 170cm for reactor No. 1, he said.

Factbox: Anatomy of a Meltdown for English Majors
Anthony Ventre Anthony Ventre – 50 mins ago


Against the multiple tragedy in Japan, individual comments seem small. We sympathize, we grieve, we pray. We feel helpless as we listen to news reports of partial reactor core meltdowns.

On social media networks, engineers justifiably mock the low level scientific knowledge that spews from the broadcast media. A reactor diagram used in an online CNN article is of the wrong type, an engineer comments.

"Does it bother anyone that CNN has a picture of a Pressurized Water Reactor on this page when the Reactor at Fukushima I Unit 1 is a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR-3)? " asks RickW123.

We liberal arts and English majors shrug our shoulders and talk to each other in frightened, shrill tones, admitting to each other that, like scientific bigots, "they all look alike."

There are two types of nuclear reactors in commercial use in the United States:

* Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR)

* Boiling Water Reactors (BWR)

The Japanese nuclear reactors at the Daiichi plant are of the BWR type.

Plutonium Fallout Risk in Japan Reactor Meltdown
March 13, 2011 12:50 PM EDT

Plutonium is added to the uranium fuel to speed the reaction of the uranium, and thereby the heating rate. However, in the event of an uncontrolled shutdown and meltdown situation, it also increases the speed and heat of the meltdown. “A shutdown of coolant to a reactor loaded with MOX fuel makes the reactor much more difficult to control than a reactor loaded with the usual uranium fuel,” wrote Vladimir Slivyak, co-chair of Russia’s Ecodefence. A disaster at the No. 3 unit would lead to plutonium fallout.

“Compared to radioactive fallout from a reactor working on uranium fuel, a much higher rate of illness can be expected as a result of irradiation,” wrote Slivyak.

Yep...it's highly improbably but if the circumstances were correct....it could explode like a nuke...the damage would be total destruction for a five mile radius to severe destruction up to 25 miles away from the blast...at least that is what I have been told

I think its pretty safe to say we are looking at a BP/EPA/US Coast Guard type cover up

Remember

"There is no signs of oil leaking"

"There is no more than 5000 barrels of oil leaking per day"

"Theres no more than 15,000 barrels of oil leaking per day"

"There is 45,000 bpd leaking"

Think of it like this guys and gals.

You have melting rods exposed at their very top portion that are at 2200c+, you have a system that is broken for normal operation. The normal run around cooling circuit of steam turning back into water re-filling is gone.

So, you have an open pot of fuel rods with their tips exposed which gets hotter continually heres why.

1. They can't pump the water in too fast or it creates a steam overpressure requiring major venting.

2. Or no matter how fast they are pouring it in you can't cool the rods because water boils off at 212f and they just cant keep them submerged due to the extreme heat.

I think once the water level drops so much and the rods begain to melt due to exposure you can't take it in reverse.

I could be all wet but, take into account thermodynamics, physics, nuclear fuel properties and temperature guidelines and I believe there is a point of no return.

And, that's where they may be on this one.
