The experiment ROCOM E2.3 represents a boron dilution event in a KONVOI-type pressurized lightwater reactor. It was conducted at room temperature with de-mineralized water without boric acid. Underborated water slugs were modelled by adding Ethanol in order to adjust a density difference of 1.22% with respect to the regular coolant inventory. At the beginning of the experiment, the slugs are enclosed between two valves in the cold legs of loops 1 and 2. The volume of the two water slugs accounts for 0.0576 m 3 (57.6 l) each and the slug fronts are located at 1.8 m upstream of the pressure vessel inlet nozzles. The experiment is started by opening the loop valves and running up the circulation pumps. The time dependency of the volumetric flow rates in all four coolant loops can be found in https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nucengdes.2020.110776. During the experiment, the mixing process was recorded by wire-mesh conductivity sensors at various positions within the coolant loops and the pressure vessel.  The nomenclature of the data files as well as the format of the tables are described in the accompanying document DataDescription_ROCOME23.pdf.
