Hope you all are well.
Got H, Deuterium, Tritium, He-3??? just lying around in gaseous form,
and leaking out all over your laboratory???? Well, fix the problem.
Store H, Deuterium, Tritium in Uranium and/or depleted
Uranium. We used to do this at EMR Photoelectric/Schlumberger all the
time. Other metals can
be used as a getter also.
Put depleted U or Uranium in a storage /metal container connected to
a vacuum system.
Make good vacuum in your system, heat the Uranium up to some temperature
and then bring the Uranium
back down to room temperature. The temperature is in the scientific
literature somewhere, or ask
the engineers at EMR Photoelectric/Schlumberger Technologies (Wallace Road
in Princeton Junction,
New Jersey) for this information. This is a pre-treatment step.
Next, under good vacuum, with the vacuum pump(s) turned off and
disconnected from the rest of the
vacuum system, introduce H/Deuterium/Tritium into the rest of the system.
Heat up the U again
and then begin to cool the Uranium gradually ---- the H/Deuterium/Tritium
will be absorbed/
adsorbed??? into the Uranium. Heat and cool Uranium to liberate and/or
absorb the H/Deuterium/
Tritium. Need to store more H/Deuterium/Tritium??? --- prepare another
uranium getter load...
Watch what you are doing --- do not force H/deuterium/tritium into
your mechanical and/or
Repeat processes as needed.
On an unrelated topic, a while ago 60 Minutes or another TV show,
persons with epilepsy or other seizure disorders were being treated by
microcomputer/chip into their brain. The microcomputer could detect the
onset of a seizure
and would then act to limit the severity (and duration) of the seizure.
apparently works. Talk to a relevant doctor for more information or
google for more
Have a good week!!!!
