Influence of boron vapor on transport behavior of deposited CsI during heating test simulating a BWR severe accident condition

In order to evaluate B influence on the release and transport of Cs and I during severe accidents, basic experiments have been performed on the interaction between deposited Cs/I compounds and vapor/aerosol B compounds. CsI and B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ were utilized as a Cs/I compound and a B compound, respectively. Deposited CsI on the thermal gradient tube (TGT), which is exposed to temperatures ranging from 423 K to 1023 K was reacted with vapor/aerosol B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, and then observed to determine how it changed Cs/I decomposition profiles. As a result, vapor/aerosol B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ stripped a portion of deposited CsI within a temperature range from 830 K to 920 K to make gaseous CsBO$$_{2}$$ and I$$_{2}$$. In addition, gaseous I$$_{2}$$ was re-deposited at a temperature range from 530 K to 740 K, while CsBO$$_{2}$$ travelled through the sampling tubes and filters without deposition. It is implied that B influences Cs carriers such as CsBO$$_{2}$$ to transport Cs to the colder regions.
