Hey all... long time no type! I can see all the good work on the FUKU Thread by all the Vigilant ATS Troopers. Hopefully You've got The Tepco
executive board members panties all in a bunch. Always messin with their truth like that, whats the matter with you? Oh, nothin... okay.
I just had to come back here to the trench cause I heard a disturbing sound. From all the way across the entire Pacific Ocean it came to my ear and It
sounded something like this:
ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss...( a troubled reactor somewhere over seas ).
It seems #2 is acting up again... naughty reactor. ( We're gonna call him "Spike"). "Now Spike, you're a bad reactor, go to your basement! Don't
you take that "criticality" tone with me, I'll see to it you go to bed without your seawater / boron gruel." (Tepco official scolding #2)
Sorry if any of this has been brought already, (my excuse is I have been elsewhere).
First of all there is this pic from a YouTube that shows the location of the temperature sensor (thermocouple) that is in the perfect place to detect
rising heat from the "melt" (in orange):
Then I have this Fuku Diary snap shot that shows a table with a 276.4 temperature reading from that thermocouple (T/C):
Tepco claims the T/C "failed", right? That temperature reading is not a "failure". When Thermocouples fail, they go to zero. If a temperature
reading is displayed then it is accurate to within 20 or so percent. Because of the rads there could be a little fudge, but not hundreds of degrees.
That chart in the pic is the last entry shown on the table. I wish we could see the next line to see if the reading continues up or goes flat line
(failed). Instead of a temperature reading it would show something like "-----" or "N/A". Depends on printout software. Any temp. reading is a
good one below the melting temp of the thermocouple itself (higher than 276 C). So there is this sudden spike. Remember this a gas temperature reading
from up in the RPV where the core used
to be. That will be a much lower temperature than down in the actual corium mass below or "outside"
the vessel containment.
There are two more charts from a pdf file that help to understand what I was saying about the Thermocouple. The first one is a temperature readout
from the sensor that shows a slow rise (good data) and then some spikes at the end that go hi and back to "baseline". Note that the spikes do not go
increasing baseline. If thermocouple was failing
these spikes would also go to zero and they don't
. This thermocouple is
recording spikes in the actual temp. of the gas flow coming up from below. So the reactor is spiking as the temperature recording steadily rises to
the end of the chart. This chart, like the diary pic above, are "cut off" before showing the actual failure of the sensor on the readout.
Now for the proof of fresh criticality. By their own charts... I circled two rises in XE-135 that match the time frame of temperature spikes.
Xenon-135 is evidence of fresh criticality, right?
Tepco is down playing this and lying outright about the failure of the Thermocouple. It's an excuse to not show us the fact that the open air corium
smelting operation at Fukushima is an ongoing, will be
an ongoing thing for the foreseeable future. Cold shutdown indeed. Don't you believe
it. These cores and SFP's are not done yet. No matter what they say, new temp spikes and fresh releases of rads will continue. Multiple tons of fuel
are involved in all the reactor buildings. When we see the data that shows a steady rise and sudden spikes coupled with increased emissions of
Radioactive Xenon, we know that a corium mass is still hot, still emitting.
