Abstract:

A pilot line activity was continued on Type SN-2146C, a ceramic stacked tube, to improve the design, materials, manufacturing techniques and to evaluate the tube type under various environmental conditions. Tooling design changes necessary for attainment of maximum po r output at minimum distortion were effected, the associa ed bell-jar exhaust equipment necess ry for tube manufacture was installed, and life test ovens with temperature range capabilities of 300 to 800 C were installed and evaluated. Parts processing and manufacturing techniques were evaluated and improved. Sealing techniques which insur a high degree of reliability were evolved. Methods of increasing production potential were satisfactorily developed and used. One hundred good tubes of the final design were produced. An intensive tube evaluation program was carried out. This included tube tes ing under severe environment l conditions of shock, fatigue, vibr ion and valuation of life t st performance at elevated temperatures, as well s st tic and dyn mic electrical tests. These data were analyzed and a final testing specification was evolved. Author
