ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL OF TRITIUM USE
AT THE TOKAMAK FUSION TEST REACTOR (TFTR)
H. J. Howe, Jr. and K. E. Lind
A primary objective of the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor r oicct (TFTR) is to
demonstrate the production of fusion energy using the deuterium-tritzm fusion
reaction in a magnetically confined plasma system. This paper will discuss the
various tritium control methods employed to minimize the release of tritium to the
environment. The methods to be described include the containment and ALAP
philosophy, engineered safety features, redundant tritium cleanup systems, redundant
instrumentation and control systems, interlocks, monitoring systems, management
controls, and waste handling systems. Estimates will be included concerning the
impact of routine and accidental tritium releases with these control systems in place.
Here’s what’s next.
