300 Area, February 12 through February 18

Description: Extrusion was run on one day, February 2, and a total of 271 billets (178 Type G, 12 type BT, and 81 red band) were processed. Two failures occurred among the red band billets; UM 6610 had begun to melt in the furnace and TX 3323 disintegrated on being extruded through the die. Samples of these billets are being checked chemically and metallurgically in an attempt to ascertain the cause for the hot-short characteristics of these billets. A sample cut from a rod which possessed zero strength (fell apart under no stress other than its own weight) at extrusion temperature was found to contain a large amount of microconstituent not ordinarily found in appreciable quantity on uranium sections. The distribution and appearance of the excess phase suggested at least partial liquation at the working temperature and it could, therefore, be responsible for the hot-short tendency.

Control Chart Method Applied to Errors in Radioactive Counting

Description: Abstract: The Control Chart statistical methods, developed by Showhart for the control of quality of manufactured products, are applied to the control of Geiger-Miller counting instruments. Experiments are reported to show the use to the Control Chart method for detecting disturbances in instrumental behavior and for detecting radioactive effects so weak that they are near the limit of detection of the instruments. As a corollary, the control chart can be used to reduce to its practical limit the time required for tests.

Shielded room measurements, Final report

Description: The attenuation of electro-statically and electro-magnetically shielded rooms in the ``E,`` ``R,`` ``I,`` and ``T`` Buildings was measured so that corrective measure could be taken if the attenuation was found to be low. If remedial measures could not be taken, the shortcomings of the rooms would be known. Also, the men making the measurements should oversee construction and correct errors at the time. The work was performed by measuring the attenuation at spot frequencies over the range of from 150 kilocycles to 1280 megacycles with suitable equipment mounted in small rubber-tried trucks. The attenuation was determined by ``before and after`` shielding and/or ``door open and door closed`` measurements after installation of copper shielding. In general, attenuation in the frequency range of approximately 10 to 150 mc. was good and was of the order expected. At frequencies in the range of 150 mc. to 1280 mc., the attenuation curve was more erratic; that is, at certain frequencies a severe loss of attenuation was noted, while at others, the attenuation was very good. This was mainly due to poor or faulty seals around doors and pass windows. These poor seals existed in the ``T,`` ``E,`` and ``I`` Buildings because the doors were fitted improperly and somewhat inferior material was used. By experience from these difficulties, both causes were corrected in the ``R`` Building, which resulted in the improvement of the very high frequency (v.h.f.) range in this building. In some specific cases, however, the results were about the same. For the range of frequencies below approximately 10 mc., the attenuation, in almost all cases, gradually decreased as the frequency decreased and reached a minimum at .3 to 1.0 mc. This loss of attenuation was attributed to multiple grounding caused by moisture in the insulating timbers and will gradually decrease as the wood …

Preservation of Laboratory Instruments in Static Storage

Description: It is desirable to place laboratory instruments in static storage so that they may be put into operation with only normal servicing. Such instruments may be subject to many forms of deterioration. There may be deterioration of metal parts due to chemical and electrolytic corrosion and the effects of moisture, excessive dryness, and microorganisms, i.e., mildew on organic parts. To preserve such instruments without disassembly or troublesome surface coatings, requires methods that will remove the major cause of deterioration - that is, excessive humidity, by reducing and maintaining the relative humidity of the air surrounding the item at 30 per cent or less. It is also necessary to eliminate or separate hygroscopic materials from the item since they will cause corrosion, by surface adsorption and condensation, even though a dry atmosphere is maintained. The methods and materials used must not only be efficient and economical but also require a minimun of maintenance, Protection against physical damage and temperature extremes is dependent upon the storage site and is not considered in this report.

Increased process water pressure to 105 buildings

Description: This document discusses increases in water pressure from the 190 Building process pumps which has been contemplated for a range of pressures up to 550 PSIG. The existing process pumps are dual units, consisting of a steam turbine driven primary pump operated: in series with an electric driven secondary pump. The secondary pumps installed in 100-B, D, F, and H Areas were designed for 400 PSIG working pressure, and were given factory hydrostatic tests of 600 PSIG. The 100-DR pumps were given factory hydrostatic tests of 650 PSIG. The Ingersoll-Rand Company advises that a working pressure of 425 PSIG is as high as they would-recommend for pump casing pressure on the secondary pumps. In consideration of problems incident to increased operating pressures, the immediate limiting factor is the total head pressure permissible on secondary pump casings. Other limiting factors are filter plant capacities, and 183 process water capacities.
