The development of an automated water target for the production of18F is described. The system was fully fested and shown to be reliable and secure. The chemical separation of18F was carried out using an anionexchange resin and K2CO3 as eluent. The18F production yields were, on average, (4.81±0.42) MBq/μAh and the specific activity was higher than 6.623×105 MBq/mmol. Heat transfer measurements and calculations were made.
