  • Publication number: 20220213601
    Abstract: A film-forming apparatus is connected to a carbon steel cleanup system pipe of a BWR plant. Formic acid and hydrogen peroxide are injected into the circulation pipe of the film-forming apparatus. An iron elution accelerator aqueous solution containing 3000 ppm of formic acid and 1500 ppm of hydrogen peroxide is brought into contact with the inner surface of the cleanup system pipe, and Fe2+ is eluted from the cleanup system pipe by formic acid, and hydroxyl radicals generated from hydrogen peroxide. The film-forming aqueous solution produced from the iron elution accelerator aqueous solution by injecting the nickel formate aqueous solution is brought into contact with the inner surface of the cleanup system pipe, and the Ni ions incorporated into the inner surface by the substitution reaction are reduced by the electrons generated at the time of elution of Fe2+ to form a Ni metal film on the inner surface thereof.
