Sorption and desorption of tritiated water on four kinds of materials for ITER

Kobayashi, Kazuhiro; Hayashi, Takumi; Nishi, Masataka; Oya, Yasuhisa*; Okuno, Kenji*

In facilities of ITER, various construction materials are possibly exposed by tritium during periodical maintenances and an accident. It is required to establish the effective surface decontamination methods for the above construction materials of ITER. In tritium decontaminating, so-called "soaking" effect is important. This effect is based on sorption of tritiated water on the materials and subsequent desorption from them. In order to obtain and summarize data on the amount of tritium adsorption on the various materials, a series of tritiated water vapor exposure experiments have been carried out as a function of time. The amounts of tritium adsorption on the materials saturated almost within the period from several weeks to 1 month. The adsorption rate of the epoxy was found to be the largest. In the exposure time less than 2 hrs, the adsorption coefficients for the examined materials were found to be in the same order as those reported by F.Ono. It will be also discussed from viewpoint of kinetics for adsorption and desorption.
