Formation mechanisms of insoluble Cs particles observed in Kanto district four days after Fukushima Daiichi NPP accident

福島第一原子力発電所事故の4日後に関東地方で観測された不溶性Cs粒子の生成機構

2011年3月15日午前中に関東地方(つくば市)で観測された不溶性Cs粒子(Aタイプ)は、$$^{134}$$Cs/$$^{137}$$Cs同位体比や炉の温度状況等から、福島第一原子力発電所2号機の炉内で生成されたと考えられてきた。しかしながら、AタイプCs粒子はほぼ純粋なケイ酸塩ガラスに覆われて急冷の痕跡があること、1号機起源のBタイプCs粒子より小粒径であること等を考えると、3号機の水素爆轟(3/14, 11:01)時に、爆轟の火炎により非常用ガス処理系(SGTS)内の高性能特殊空気(HEPA)フィルタが溶融してシリカ源となり、爆風による微粒化とそれに伴う急冷が同時に起きて粒子は生成された可能性が高い。また、爆轟時の風速場から、粒子の大部分は海方向に流されたが、一部が爆風で原子炉建屋(R/B)深部に移動し、3/15未明の3号機の炉心注水再開時に発生した蒸気の流れによって再浮遊して環境中に放出されたとすることで、観測データを矛盾無く説明できる。

The insoluble Cs particles (Type A) were firstly observed in Tsukuba-city on the morning of March 15. The particles have been considered to be generated in RPV of Unit 2 by evaporation/condensation based on the measured $$^{134}$$Cs/$$^{137}$$Cs ratio and the core temperatures of each unit. However, the Type A particles with smaller diameter than the Type B particles of Unit 1 origin, are covered by almost pure silicate glass and have a trace of the quenching. This indicates that the particles could have been generated due to the melting of the HEPA filter in SGTS by the fire of H$$_{2}$$ detonation at Unit 3, and atomization followed by quenching of the molten materials by air blast of the explosion. Although the particles were mostly dispersed to the sea because of the wind direction, some of them deposited onto the lower elevation of R/B at Unit 3, could have been subsequently re-suspended and released into the environment, by the steam flow in the R/B caused by restart of the Unit 3 core cooling water injection at 2:30 of March 15.
