Trace anions including chromate in water-steam cycle of a boiling water reactor (BWR)


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 Preconcentration (MiPCT) and automatic calibration with a single multi-ion calibration standard.
