DEVELOPMENT OF CONTAINER MATERIALS FOR LAMPRE APPLICATIONS

Description

Some 53 high-purity binary tantalum-base alloys were prepared and evaluated as candidate materials of construc tion for the Los Alamos Molten Plutonium Reactor Experiment. Preliminary data indicate that good resistance to attack by the fuels can be obtained by alloying tantalum. Alloys containing additions of rhenium and tungsten showed good corrosion resistance in polythermal (1352 to 1022 deg F) tilting-furnace exposures. Tantalum--yttrium alloys also displayed good corrosion resistance, even though the yttrium apparently was lost during arc melting. Most of the alloys, including those which showed good corrosion resistance, were amenable to arc melting and casting and fabrication at room ... continued below
