Abstract

Electrochemical oxygen sensors currently used for measuring the chemical potential of oxygen in liquid lead alloys were investigated by five European laboratories, focussing on factors influencing the accuracy of the sensor output, the long-term performance in experimental facilities and methods of testing the sensors before installation and during operation in a plant. The design of different electrochemical oxygen sensors is introduced, along with the experimentally determined sensor reliability and appropriate testing methods. The reported results summarize the results of Task 4.2.4 within Domain 4 (DEMETRA) of the integrated project (IP) EUROTRANS that was funded by the EURATOM 6th Framework Programme.
