Abstract : The overall tube length and weight of the BL-223 was decreased. These reductions were accomplished by reducing the length of the gear housing, its associated connector, and anode assembly. Attempts were made to eliminate the expensive copper-clad molybdenum material used in the anode vanes, but the test results proved negative. Although some anode assemblies were successfully made, the process involved resulted in greater cost and lengthening of the assembly time. Investigations were made into using a new lower cost, high ductile, copper-clad molybdenum material. This new material was satisfactorily used thoughout the pilot production run. (Author)
