Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0007192A2] The invention concerns a method and a device for separating a neutron absorber (A) from a cooling medium (K) in a nuclear facility. According to the inventive method, the cooling medium (K) is evaporated by heating, the evacuated cooling medium vapor (KD) is compressed in a compressor (51) by raising the temperature and utilized for evaporating other cooling media. Preferably, a fraction of the compressed cooling medium vapor (KD) is fed to a condenser (74). Preferably, a cleaning gas device (100) and a blocking fluid device (121) are available.
