- To evaluate the crudding characteristics of ammonium hydroxide conditioned coolant it is necessary to use a thermocouple element. The present design has accentuated structural integrity, reliability and constant heat flux. A radical departure from past designs was made by selecting a stainless steel cladding and enriched ceramic fuel. Three thermocouples are inserted in the cladding to increase the reliability. By the use of two thermocouple elements it will be possible to obtain important preliminary information on preferential crud deposition while simultaneously evaluating the crudding characteristics of ammonium hydroxide conditioned coolant.
