This paper studies the existence of coexistence states in a spatially heterogeneous reaction diffusion system arising in nuclear dynamics. Essentially, it establishes the existence of an unbounded component $\mathfrak{C}_+$ of the set of coexistence states of the system bifurcating from the trivial steady state solution, and it characterizes the values of the parameters where $\mathfrak{C}_+$ bifurcates from the trivial solution and from infinity. Throughout this paper, by a component it is meant a closed and connected subset which is maximal for the inclusion.
