Based on experience achieved in isotopes separation for heavy water, since 1992 was started a tritium program at National Institute of Research and Development for Cryogenic and Isotope Separation Technologies with the objective of Romanian technology for Tritium Removal Facility (TRF). During the normal operation of a CANDU reactor, the tritium is formed in the moderator heavy water and cooling agent.  Thus, the concentration may increase up to a steady regime in each system, where the tritium development is balanced by its radioactive disintegration. Designing and implementing the concept of cryogenic distillation column require experiments to be conducted as well as computer simulations. Particularly, computer simulations are of great importance when designing and evaluating the performances of a column or a series of columns. Experimental data collected from laboratory work will be used as input for computer simulations run at larger scale (for The Pilot Plant for tritium and Deuterium Separation) in order to increase the confidence in the simulated results. Therefore for simulating system required is important to develop a performed data acquisition system.
