Tristructural Isotropic (TRISO) coated fuels start with a uranium kernel, which is coated with three layers of pyrolytic carbon and one layer of silicon carbide. These coatings encapsulate all product radionuclei under all operating conditions.
- Carbon and ceramic layers prevent release of radioactivity
- TRISO particles maintain individual integrity independent of their particles
- Graphite surrounding the TRISO particles moderates the reaction
- UCO TRISO coated particles act like pressure vessels to retain fission products
