Abstract:

The development status of the rotary actuatorAND SERVO VALVE, PRESSURE REGULATOR, RELIEF VALVE, ACCUM LATOR, FILTER AND CHECK VALVE AS WELL AS THE TURBO-COMPRESSOR ARE DISCUSSED. Progress was made on refining the test program for the tube fittings and boss seals. A hightemperature facilities survey was undertaken to evaluate instrumentation, procedures, and safety regulations used by other companies concerned with high-temperature and nuclear radiation testing. Results of this survey are also included. Initial preparations were undertaken to prepare the high temperature test laboratory for the test phase. Modification of the environmental chambeer and air heater are underway. Instrumentation requirements were reviewed and preliminary procurement was initiated on long lead time test equipment. Author
