Rapid tritium analysis for marine products in the coastal area of Fukushima

Kuwata, Haruka*; Misono, Toshiharu; Fujiwara, Kenso; Takeishi, Minoru; Manabe, Sachi*; Kitamura, Akihiro

Radiation Environment and Medicine, 9(1), p.28 - 34, 2020/02

The analysis of tritium in aquatic biota is one of the most important research areas in Fukushima. The conventional method for measuring the concentration of tritium consists of complicated pretreatment procedures and requires skillful techniques as well as a significant amount of time. Consequently, there are only a few reports on tritium monitoring data in marine products from the coast of Fukushima. In this study, we measured the Tissue Free Water Tritium (TFWT) and Organically Bound Tritium (OBT) in flounders collected from the coast of Fukushima to examine the impacts of the nuclear accident on aquatic biota. The study was done for a period of 4 years; from 2015 to 2018. The conventional method of analysis was firstly used, after which the method was modified by improving the freeze-drying and combustion water recovery processes. Results from both methods show that the most of the concentrations of the TFWT and OBT in the flounder were below the detection or quantitative limit. The effect of the nuclear accident on humans, through internal exposure, was also examined and found to be negligible. Although some uncertainties exist due to the short cut of the processes, the modified version could be considered an effective and practical approximate method.

Measurement of tritium penetration through concrete material covered by various paints coating

The present study aims at obtaining fundamental knowledge for tritium transfer behavior and interaction between tritium and paint coated on concrete walls. The amounts of tritium penetration and release in cement paste with epoxy and urethane paint coatings were measured. The tritium penetration amounts were increased with the HTO exposure time. Time to achieve each saturate tritium value was more than 60 days for cement paste coated with epoxy paint and with urethane paint, while cement paste without paint took 2 days to achieve it. Tritium penetration rates were estimated by an analysis of diffusion model. Although their paint coatings were effective for reduction of tritium penetration through the cement paste exposed to HTO for a short period, the amount of tritium trapped in the paints became large for a long time. This work has been performed under the collaboration research between JAEA and Kyushu University.

An experimental study on tritium (T) transfer in porous concrete for the tertiary T safety containment is performed to investigate (1) how fast HTO penetrates through concrete walls, (2) how well concrete walls contaminated with water-soluble T are decontaminated by a solution-in-water technique, and (3) how well hydrophobic paint coating works as a protecting film against HTO migrating through concrete walls. The epoxy paint coating can work as a HTO diffusion barrier and the PRF value is around 1/10. The silicon paint coating cannot work as the anti-T permeation barrier, because water deteriorates contact between the paint and cement or mortar.

Concentration profiles of tritium penetrated into concrete

Concentration profiles of tritium penetrated into cement paste, mortar and concrete were measured by using samples with a shape of column. Tritium penetrated until a location of about 5 cm from the exposed surface after 6 months' exposure. The amount of tritium penetrated into mortar and concrete were less than 70% and half that into cement paste.
