Abstract:

A detailed investigation to determine the applicability of radiochemical exchange techniques, using Kryptonates, as a system for detecting hydrogen vapor concentrations of 1 or less, aboard aerospace flight vehicles, was conducted. The optimum host material was found to be a 50-50 mixture of aluminum oxide and kryptonated platinum dioxide. This mixture can detect hydrogen in concentrations less than 1 with a response time of less than 0.5 seconds. An experimental model demonstrating the feasibility and applicability of the kryptonate detection system was constructed. Author
