- Screening tests for eight materials (4130 steel, 304 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel, 347 stainless steel, nitronic 50, A286, Monel 400, and Inconel 600) in high purity rubidium showed no liquid metal embrittlement for statically stressed, smooth ''C''-rings at temperatures between 400 and 672/sup 0/K. Potentially injurious localized corrosion in the form of pitting was observed for 304 stainless steel at 672/sup 0/K. All other materials showed good performance in the temperature range proposed for krypton-85 gas cylinder storage. Type 304 stainless steel showed significant general corrosion and intergranular attack in liquid rubidium of lower purity between 793 and 893/sup 0/K. Type 304 stainless steel is not recommended for hardware which may encounter similar service conditions.
