Corrosion of carbon steel and low-alloy steel in diluted seawater containing hydrazine under $$gamma$$-rays irradiation

Nakano, Junichi; Yamamoto, Masahiro ; Tsukada, Takashi 

The seawater was injected into reactor cores of Units 1, 2 and 3 in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. To investigate effects of $$gamma$$ rays irradiation on corrosion of carbon steel and low alloy steel, corrosion tests were performed in the diluted seawater at 50 $$^{circ}$$C under $$gamma$$ rays irradiation with dose rates of 4.4 kGy/h and 0.2 kGy/h. Hydrazine (N$$_{2}$$H$$_{4}$$) was added to the diluted seawater. In the diluted seawater without N$$_{2}$$H$$_{4}$$, the weight losses of the steels irradiated with 0.2 kGy/h were similar to those of the unirradiated steels, and the weight losses of the steels irradiated with 4.4 kGy/h increased to approximate 1.7 times of those of the unirradiated steels. The weight losses of the steels irradiated in the diluted seawater containing N$$_{2}$$H$$_{4}$$ were similar to those in the diluted seawater without N$$_{2}$$H$$_{4}$$. When N$$_{2}$$ was introduced to gas phase in the flasks during $$gamma$$ rays irradiation, the weight losses of the steels decreased.
