If this was in any other publication that would be cause for concern, but since this is that blog again, you can safely ignore it.

I'm mostly surprised that they didn't work something about the imminent hyperflation megacollapse of the dollar and the ascendancy of the ruble as the number one reserve currency into this article.

The source of the leak was a 3 mm-diameter hole near a flow valve

9 days to fix a 3mm hole?

I'm pretty sure that a 3mm hole is actually too SMALL for great stuff, It's for gaps between 0.25 to 0.5 inches, really.

You'd have to find a caulk that sets in water, but caulk would be the way to fix it.

Or fill it with grout, i suppose.

The only thing the author has is that maybe they don't know exactly where the 3 mm hole they have 9 days to fix is. Maybe.

Maybe the author could use his time to do something productive like learn a foreign language or hike a mountain.

It serioiusly does.  What happens when temperatures exceed 65C?  I would have thought that closer to 100C would be the ermahgerd danger zone, as the existing water would start boiling away and temperatures would really spiral out of control.
 
2014-07-07 09:41:16 AM  
this idiot has no idea what he is talking about "If no new cold water is pumped in at such rate it will reach the dangerous threshold of 65C ".  A temp of 65C?  What ever will we do?

Then there is the claim that the temperature will cause dangerous reactions.  LMAO!!  What an idiot

Perhaps they could put a pail underneath to collect said water? Empty it once a day, there problem solved

As Chernobyl showed that's not actually the best solution. Concrete breaks apart, cracks, suffers water damage, etc. In the long run you're better off maintaining the thing until you can figure out how to safely disassemble it.

At that size, you could, in the general theory of a tank of water of course, even drill it out even and pop in a rivet.

 All repairs though, are dependent on good structural integrity around it(if it's randomly springing leaks, any patch could be a bandaid on a larger problem, if not make it worse due to ending a slow release of pressure and something else really big gives), and accessibility(to include difficulties if it's really really hot water that excludes a person working on it directly)

It's potentially newsworthy despite the small size, however, that's a shiatty blog with zero details.

I suspect that all the operators are Fukushimaed. Or they could just turn into green superheroes and sort the problem out. Either way, I'm not eating the three-eyed fish.

Yeah, but if any of that were true, the news media would jump on it, because they LOVE scaring people.

To me it reads like exactly what you'd expect from a cleanup site.

"fark, cooling pool number 5 is leaking again."

"shiat, well, lets shut down the pumps and go find the leak, just like we did last week, and the week before that, ever since shiat went pearshaped."

65C is the "Danger" point? What the... That makes no sense. And it would quite literally take less than 2 minutes to patch a 3mm hole. If it's in a pipe (as the link implies) you can just slap a rubber lined, similarly curved sleeve on it and strap it on with a metal band. It's not like they have to do a fix that requires it to work at operating pressures.

God dammit I hate idiots who write about things that they have absolutely no clue about.

Radioactive Ass: 65C is the "Danger" point? What the... That makes no sense.


65C at the temperature gauge could mean 101C in the middle of the fuel bundles.

Those farkers are still hot enough to spontaneously combust if you don't keep pulling the heat out of them.

I forget why 65C is the danger point, but I remember it coming up in the weeks after fukushima blowing its top as well.

I can only imagine thats the point where the fuel bundles start doing things that constitute a bad day.

Pretty much what I was thinking...

We get nervous and people start losing their jobs if our temps get to about 90C, so that's Fukishima +25C... But then again, ours isn't leaking like a sieve that the media claims Fukishima is doing...

So they keep doing what they've been doing with the other leaking reactors; collect the water and keep pumping cold water into the system until they find the leak, then fix it. The reactor was shut down when the earthquake hit, the concern here is the fuel rods overheating like the spent fuel rod pools. TESCO claiming they've got to shut the system down doesn't make sense; keep the water flowing you idiots.

Farkers, you rock. It is so nice to see that so many of you have determined how easy it is to fix a leak at at a damaged reactor cooling pump.

fluffy2097: 65C at the temperature gauge could mean 101C in the middle of the fuel bundles.


I can see that logic but that's not how TFA read. It said that the 65C temps would be an issue at the core/rods itself. That's well into the cold iron range and it's nonsense. 101C is a different matter.
 
2014-07-07 10:32:22 AM  
It's a 3 mm hole that has to be patched in a highly radioactive environment, possibly in a bent pipe and possibly under a bunch of broken up stuff.

I don't think they can just drop an egg in it.

No it has to be easy. It has to be easy because Farkers do not like the website that hosted the article.

Have you ever been in this room? (youtube video) I have, several times, and the fix is fairly straightforward and relevant and I doubt that the pressures or amount of water at Fukushima are even close to what that video shows. The only possible tricky bit might be background radiation, which TFA never talks about. But for a fix like this the people doing the work would practice the repair several times off site anyway to limit exposure during the actual repair by ironing out any issues ahead of time.
