Application Note: Trace Anions Including Chromate in the Water-Steam Cycle of a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR)
2 September 2013

Water of the water-steam cycle of boiling water reactors (BWR) needs to be free of corrosive anions. Analyzing these trace anions allows the parallel determination of chromate, which is a potential corrosion product. Automated sample preparation includes variable Inline Pre-concentration (MiPCT) and automatic calibration with a single multi-ion calibration standard.
