Abstract:

Materials were selected for 850C potassium vapor exposure. A transformer was designed and selected as a test device to determine the combined effect of 600C potassium vapor, fluctuating magnetic fields and high a-c voltage on insulators, potting compounds, magnetic materials, and electrical conductors. Potassium vapor corrosion tests are in progress on the materials that will be used in the final test transformer. Ceramic to metal seal development is being studied extensively as terminal seals for electrical feed throughs will be needed for electrical testing in potassium vapor at elevated temperatures.
