Sipping test: Checking for failure of fuel elements at the opal reactor

Smith, Michael; Bignell, Lindsay Jordan; Alexiev, Dimitri; Mo, L


Sipping measurements were implemented at the Open Pool Australian Light water reactor (OPAL) to test for failure in reactor fuel elements. Fission product released by the fuel element into the pool water was measured using both High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detection via samples and a NaI(Tl) detection in-situ with the sipping device. Results from two fuel elements are presented.
