scroll

Nuclear reactor in which the fuel elements are contained within many tubes through which the coolant is circulated. This tube arrangement is surrounded by the moderator. In the Canadian CANDU reactor type, heavy water (D2O) is used as a coolant and moderator; in the Russian RBMK reactor type, light water (H2O) is used as coolant and graphite as a moderator.
