Abstract:

A process for producing a calcium chemical pump which includes providing an evacuated container that has a vacuum pulled thereon and heating calcium with an induction heater to the point of causing the calcium to boil and rise as a vapor and depositing the vapor in the form of calcium on a porous foamed substrate material to load the foamed substrate material with the calcium to provide a calcium chemical pump and further, if desired, applying a potential to the substrate material to cause ion plating of the calcium in the form of finger-like formations on the substrate material to thereby provide greater surface area of the deposited calcium.
