    Moderators in nuclear engineering are used to slow down the speed of neutrons in a nuclear fission chain reaction. According to some sources, regular water, solid graphite and heavy water are commonly used as moderators. Regular or light water is used approximately 75 percent of the world's nuclear reactors.
