Improved electrical leads for high pressure systems

Description: Electrical connections from the interior of a pressure vessel to atmospheric pressure typically place many design constraints on high pressure experimentation. A simplified version of older techniques using the cone seal has proven itself repeatedly in both gas and liquid systems with high reliability and ease of fabrication. Previous cone sleeves were made of oil soaked pyrophyllite, ivory and bone as well as certain plastics. All of these sleeves were made by careful machining to very close tolerances. Such machining was a considerable challenge (as well as being time consuming) and is completely eliminated in the technique described here. (auth)

Testing of coatings for the nuclear industry

Description: Coatings for commercial nuclear power plants need to withstand humidity, radiation exposure, and LOC accident conditions; they also must be decontaminable. Tests for decontaminability, radiation stability, and design-basis-accident (DBA) resistance are described. An irradiation test facility using spent fuel assemblies and a spray loop for simulating a DBA are described. A sample test report sheet is presented. (DLC)
