DOE has produced tritium at the
Savannah River Site with the use of a
reactor. Tritium is commercially
available from from Canada and the
European Community for non-weapons
use.
B.
Uses of Tritium
1.
Consumer Products
a.
Gaseous tritium light sources
-  exit signs (1 Ci to tens of Ci's)
-  aviation landing aids (30-165 Ci
per light)
(1 curie of tritium has a mass of
approximately 0.1 mg)
b. Luminizing industry: Self-luminous
compounds for dials (several mCi's)
and controls as well as other general
industry uses.
2.
Research - Tritium Labeling
Tracers for medical and laboratory
research.
