Abstract in Spanish

En primera instancia, se presenta información que permite conocer las razones por las cuales es necesario llevar a cabo un estudio relacionado con la optimización de la producción de Molibdeno 99. Ademas, se expone información de algunos reactores nucleares productores, y de sus instalaciones para la producción de dicho radioisótopo. Luego, a partir de un enfoque neutrónico y termo hidráulico, se realiza un análisis de la producción de molibdeno al variar distintos parámetros físicos y geométricos del dispositivo de producción y del reactor. Finalmente, se obtienen distintas conclusiones acerca de las tendencias que permiten optimizar la producción de Mo 99.

Abstract in English

Firstly, information that permit know the main reasons why it is necesary carry out an estudy about Molybdenum 99 optimization is presented. Furthermore, information about some radioisotope production reactors is presented, as well as information related with their radioisotope production facilities. Then, by mean a neutronic and termo hidraulic focus, an analysis of molybdenum production is performed, when diverse physics and geometrics parameters of the production facility and the reactor are variated. Finally, different conclusions are obtained about the trends that allow optimize Mo 99 production.
