CANDU Reactor - Design - Tritium Emissions
... Tritium is a radioactive form of hydrogen (H-3), with a half-life of 12.3 years ... Tritium is considered a weak radionuclide because of its low-energy radioactive emissions (beta particle energy 0 -19 keV) ... Tritium is generated in the fuel of all reactors however, CANDU reactors generate tritium also in their coolant and moderator, due to neutron capture in heavy hydrogen ...
