Description: Abstract: "The Calutron has been successfully employed to separate the stable isotopes of twenty-one elements. The standard Beta M-2 unit modified to handle charge materials of various temperature ranges has proven adequate for a majority of separations. The problem of K life has received considerable attention but is still to be solved. Other operational problems are similar in most respects to those of uranium. The E design has, of necessity, varied greatly from the "Beta Gloria" type. A desire to keep construction simple, yet adequate for efficient collection and readily adaptable for use with many elements, has dictated the trend in E design. Water cooling on the receiver pockets was necessary with many of the elements separated. The chemical purification of the separated samples, although following a general pattern, varies with the type of pockets used and the element collected."
