Online analysis of trace anions in borated water of a pressurized water reactor (PWR)



Water of the primary cycle of pressurized water reactors (PWR) contains boron for neutron absorption. The high borate content interferes with the direct analysis of trace anions. Inline Neutralization combined with variable preconcentration and Inline Matrix Elimination (MiPCT-ME) allows to remove boron as boric acid before injection.
