Lava-B test-bench

The test-bench is intended to simulate processes accompanying severe accidents of water-cooled power reactors with core melting. Lava-B test-bench allows conducting research FCI (Fuel Coolant Interaction), MCCI (Melt Coolant Concrete Interaction) with corium of a total mass up to 60 kg and temperature up to 3000 °С.

Currently, CORMIT and Fukushima Debris projects are ongoing based on Lava-B by the order of TOSHIBA Company through the intermediary of Marubeni Utility Services Ltd. (MUS).
