Abstract:

Tests were conducted in Cold Chamber, in which compressed air, steam, vacuum, water, and antifreeze solution were used to remove a fluorescent fallout simulant from a large tractor at temperatures down to minus 10 degrees F. It is concluded that antifreeze solution and water, if warmed, are the most effective materials steam may be acceptably effective, and air and vacuum have limited use.
