Abstract:

An analysis of a brazing problem in the anode construction is discussed. Tests were conducted whereby voids in a brazed joint could be detected with an instrument which transmitted and received reflected supersonic waves. A modified anode design is recommended in which the culpable voids could not occur. Tests were performed on a tube having a cavity grid construction. From these tests it was possible to predict approximately the recovery time a tube containing widely spaced virtual and collector anodes. Author
