ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

Synthetic zeolite is the candidate material of the separation column of the gas chromatograph for the hydrogen isotope analysis. Mordenite (MOR) is one of the zeolite, and has been reported that the MOR column can separate hydrogen isotope at about 200K. So, the present authors have investigated the adsorption capacities of H2 and D2 on MOR at various temperatures, and have predicted the adsorption isotherms of HD, HT, DT and T2. In this work, the adsorption capacities of tritium on MOR at 77K and 87K were investigated, and they were compared with the predicted isotherms. The observed isotherm at 87K agreed with the predicted isotherm well in low pressure region. However, at 77K, the adsorption capacity at low pressure region was smaller than that of D2.
