PAR Loop Schedule Review

Description: The schedule for the installation of the PAR slurry loop experiment in the South Facility of the ORR has been reviewed and revised. The design, fabrication, and installation is approximately two weeks behind schedule at this time due to many factors; however, indications are that this time can be made up. Design is estimated to be 56 per cent complete, fabrication 27 per cent complete-and installation 11 per cent complete:

Classified information required by operators and others exposed to radiation hazards

Description: Information required by operators exposed to radiation hazards is discussed. All areas of the plant are subjected to radiation hazards similar to those in the radium industry. Personnel in these areas are required to wear pencil meters and special badges that are evidently not solely for identification. They are required to submit to medical examinations more stringent and frequent than usual. They are required to wear heavy gloves in one location, thin gloves in another, disposable hats or rub… more

Corrosion of Tuballoy-Molybdenum Alloys by Water

Description: The primary purpose of the corrosion work was to find a tuballoy alloy which would be sufficiently corrosion resistant to be useful for canned slugs even if some of the can were to leak. The secondary purpose was to obtain general corrosion data on tuballoy alloys.

Questions on the toxicity and behavior of product in the body

Description: This May 1945 report deals with how best to estimate the toxicity of ``Product`` to workers at Clinton Laboratories. Discussed are the issues of how toxic product is relative to radium, methods of analysis of product in the body, means of elimination from and distribution of product within the body, and what therapeutic measures are available. The principal concern of the author is that of protection of personnel who regularly handle in the laboratory large amounts of this material.

The medical applications of radioactive tracers

Description: This report provides a broad yet in depth overview of the use of radioactive materials as tracers in medicine and biology for the period of 1935--1947. Particular attention is paid to is of radio-sodium, radio-iodine, radio-iron, radio-phosphorus, radio-strontium, and fission products. The main thrust of this paper is human rather than animal work and focuses in work that has been published.

Calorimetry research progress report, March 1--31,, 1948

Description: Sixty-eight samples were assayed. The 5 calorimeters of type 30 were finished. Calorimeter 36, whose construction has been started, is an improved version of 30. A system of switches has been devised. A simple, fast, insensitive calorimeter for measuring high activity samples is being tested. The calculations on the half-life of postum were checked.

The changes in the blood of humans chronically exposed to low level gamma radiation

Description: Ten individuals received an average of 0.211 roentgens of gamma radiation per week for a 77 period week (December 1946-June 1948) for a total average dose of 16.21 roentgens. During this period these 10 men carried out an experiment involving materials which emit gamma radiation and were monitored by daily film badges. The radiation delivered during a week was received in a five day work week and usually they received approximately one-half of their weekly dosage during one of the five days. A … more

Electrodeposition progress report, October 1--31, 1948

Description: The general points being considered in the construction of equipment for the production of High Level Postum Gauzes were mentioned in the last progress report. A more detailed discussion of the progress to date will be made here. The development work of plating postum out of hydrofluoric acid has proceeded to the point where it is desired to make some runs plating out quantities of postum from 10--250 units per gauze. The following points have been considered in a report for limited distributio… more
