Abstract:

The development of components for the high-temperature and nuclear- radiation-resistant pneumatic system has been satisfactory. Some setbacks were encountered in connection with servo control valve stability, welding of the accumulator and sintering of the filter element. The first phase of the tube fitting and boss seal evaluation was completed. Based on this limited testing program, one tube fitting and one boss seal showed promise for use in the high- temperature pneumatic system.
