Abstract A fusion safety experiment was conducted to determine the consequences of water injection into lead-lithium alloy under postulated reactor accident conditions. Water and hydrogen released from the test were 2.0 and 37.8 g/mol, respectively. This indicates that 97% of the water reacted and that 0.50 mol. of hydrogen was released per mol. of water reacted. The behavior of radioactive species associated with the use of this alloy as a breeder material was determined. The reaction products were identified, and the aerosol was characterized for particle size, chemical composition, and deposition rate.<<ETX>>
