Abstract

Magnetic phases of corrosion products from nuclear power plant WWER-440 (Jaslovské Bohunice) steam generators and secondary circuit pipes were investigated using transmission Mössbauer spectroscopy technique.

The main components of secondary circuit’s corrosion products are magnetite (Fe3O4) and hematite (α-Fe2O3) in different ratios. The results can be used for optimal control and maintenance of WWER-440 nuclear reactors as well as for optimisation of water chemistry regime.
