Abstract:

Methods for quantitative analyses of effluent samples from direct cycle air cooled nuclear reactors are presented. Methods have been developed for analyses of beryllium and uranium at 10exp-9 gram levels in various collection media, and the level of beryllium and uranium present in the unexposed media has been determined. Separation and decontamination schemes have been developed for the detection of the following radionuclides Mo99, Sr89,90, Ru103,106, Cs136,137, Ba140, Y91, Cd115 and Np239. Collection media investigated included several filter papers. canisters of activated carbon, and gummed paper.
