Title: Electrolysis of tritiated water in solid polymer electrolyte cells

Abstract

An investigation of the electrolysis of tritiated water using General Electric Company solid-polymer-electrolyte (SPE) cells was carried out at MRC-Mound. Several operating systems were built and tests done on three types of G.E. cell designs. Tritium concentrations of 1 to 300 Ci/ml in a single addition of tritiated water were used in the first four tests. Total cell operating time until SPE failure was recorded for these tests. The final five tests were designed to measure SPE lifetime at tritium concentrations of 1, 10, and 100 Ci/ml. Lifetimes were 203, 49-111, and 22 days for the 1, 10, and 100 Ci/ml tests, respectively.
