Radioactive airborne effluent discharged from Tokai reprocessing plant (TRP) contains tritium, carbon-14 and radioiodine. These radionuclides are collected with appropriate methods, respectively, in stacks to monitor their concentrations and discharged amounts. This report describes (1) the methods for collecting these radionuclides in TRP; (2) evaluations of the concentrations and discharged amounts; and (3) investigations on estimating performances of the collecting methods. The investigations showed that the collecting methods used in TRP have collecting efficiencies of more than 90% for tritium and radioiodine, and almost 100% for carbon-14. Considerations concerning collection of radionuclides in airborne effluent, made in this study, provided some technical aspects required for establishing more reliable monitoring systems.
