Corrosion At Fukushima Daiichi Explained

December 2nd, 2012 | Add a Comment

A very critical factor in the aftermath of the nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima is stress and corrosion on metal parts of the reactors themselves and also the spent fuel and fuel pools. In this paper we look at corrosion factors and also the actual pipes in use at Daiichi for the ongoing watering effort.


TEPCO faces a major challenge to keep these existing pipes clear and working for the next 10 years. We did not find any records of these pipes being replaced at units 1-3 at Fukushima Daiichi NPP. The feedwater and core spray rings inside the reactors were replaced as part of the shroud replacement work that was done at units 1-3 between 1997 and 2001. (4) The pipes are about 42 years old and have suffered the extreme conditions of the triple meltdown accident. TEPCO has not proposed any plan for dealing with this issue.
