Abstract

The tritum gas obtained from a tritium production campaign was analyzed with a practical radiogas chromatograph, which enabled one to make successive determination of the chemical and isotopic purity of the gas. The calibration of thermal conductivity detector for hydrogen gases showed that sensitivities of detector were H2>HT>T2 in that order. The chemical and isotopic purity of the tritum gas produced was determined to be 99.0% and 93.6%, respectively.
