Thermocouple Development for Project Rover

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Thermocouples are used for the control and diagnostic measurement of the thermal behavior of cores in the Kiwi and Nerva reactors of Project Rover. The predominant hostile environmental conditions are those of hot hydrogen, hot graphite, and intense nuclear radiation. W/W Re thermocouples, insulated by BeO and encased in Mo or Ta sheaths, seem to show the most promise. Some aspects of thermocouple development, principally shunt effects and sheath integrity, are discussed.
