Advanced Membrane Degassing Technology for Radiation Source Term Reduction and Corrosion Control in Nuclear Power Plants

Dissolved gas control in a nuclear power plant's water system, including the primary makeup water storage tank and refueling water storage tank, can be essential to reduce radiation source term (release of radioactive material). Controlling dissolved gases can also help reduce the formation of unwanted radionuclides, such as 14C and oxides of 60Co, and alleviate primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC).
