Table 3 Fusion reactor soft waste activity data obtained using the HBO2 and Pyrolyser systems

From: A new bomb-combustion system for tritium extraction

Sample type Hyperbaric oxidiser [Bq/g] Pyrolyser [Bq/g] HBO2 memory [%]
Fibreboard 1 11,300 ± 2000 11,000 ± 2000 0.62
Fibreboard 2 5900 ± 1000 8000 ± 2000 0.51
‘Housekeeping’ 1 600 ± 100 3100 ± 600 0.33
‘Housekeeping’ 2 80 ± 20 2700 ± 500 1.3
PVC 3000 ± 600 2600 ± 500 Not measured
  1. The 3H ‘memory effect’ of the HBO2 system is also shown, measured in % of activity carried over from the active sample to a cellulose ‘blank’ combustion completed immediately afterwards
