PUREX法では使用済燃料が硝酸溶液へと溶解される。使用済燃料由来の核分裂生成物を含む再処理溶液は金属材料の強い腐食性を有し、ステンレス鋼製機器の表面には頻繁に腐食が発生する。プロセス溶液中のルテニウム(Ru)やネプツニウム(Np)のような酸化性イオンはステンレス鋼が激しく腐食する主な要因となる。ステンレス鋼の腐食速度を得るために、腐食試験装置をホットラボ(日本原子力研究開発機構の廃棄物安全試験施設(WASTEF))内の気密型コンクリートセルへと設置し、Np含有加熱硝酸溶液中のステンレス鋼腐食試験を実施した。腐食試験は室温から沸点の温度範囲で1バッチ500時間実施した。その結果、硝酸溶液中のNpはステンレス鋼の腐食を加速することが示された。

In the PUREX method, spent fuels are dissolved with nitric acid media. The reprocessing solution containing Fission Products derived from spent fuels is very corrosive to metal materials, the corrosion problem often appears on the surface stainless steel devices. The oxidizing metal ions such as Ruthenium (Ru) and Neptunium (Np) in the process solution is the key reason for severe corrosion of stainless steel. In order to obtain the corrosion rate of stainless steel, we installed the corrosion test apparatus inside an airtight concrete cell in a hot laboratory (the WAste Safety TEsting Facility (WASTEF) of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency), and performed the corrosion tests of stainless steel in the heated nitric acid solution containing Np. The corrosion tests were performed in the temperature range from room temperature to boiling point for 500 hours per batch. The results show that the presence of Np accelerate the stainless steel corrosion in the nitric acid solution.
