The second test of the closed-loop verified the reliability and versatility of the peripheral equipment and measuring instruments. Many improvements were made in the loop since the first test. The second test, although rewarding, was not wholly successful. Details of the second test are presented along with a description of the present status of the ceramic lined end returns. The estimated loop performance calcula tions were made for two additional temperatures, thereby giving a more complete theoretical picture of its capabilities. Author
