Mobile Strontium 90 Removal Equipment At Fukushima Appears To Work

kurion_mobile_processing_system1.aip6em8ermwooko8cc8c00w40.5r15frdicg4kos40gwk400wsw.thThe US company that supplied a mobile strontium 90 filtration system is saying it met target goals of performance at Fukushima Daiichi. The company also mentions that TEPCO has now ordered a second unit.

The mobile system is installed in a shipping crate and is able to be moved from place to place. The system then filters the contents of a storage tank to remove strontium 90. The high levels of strontium 90 had been an ongoing problem. Even after water had been treated through the Sarry filtration system, only the cesiums had been removed. An early series of tank leaks at the facility had released large amounts of strontium 90 into the groundwater causing concerns about the potential for more large leaks.

TEPCO has been unusually silent on something that they would usually tout as a success. Kurion, the company that made the unit claimed it filtered 11,000 metric tons of water since October with a 99.95% removal rate for strontium 90.
