Abstract:

Mechanical test data on metallic and ceramic specimens after 1000 hours in 600 C potassium are given. A nickel clad silver conductor was tested for 917 hours in potassium vapor with little increase in resistivity. Helium leak tight brazes were obtained on a Rowland ring core box ceramic part. Density and grain size measurements are given for WAED hot pressed ceramic materials. Alumina-yttria and alumina from aluminum oxychloride were applied to rhodium conductors.
