Re: Questions on refilling Hydrogen tank

At work, for our GC instrument we only pump down the internal CYL before filling if the pressure is too low. Otherwise we just purge the fill manifold and instruments regulator/plumbing before filling.

Re: Trying for Tritium

Radiation license's are very specific. Licensee's need to specify which isotopes, the activity levels and procedures. So anything outside of that would get them in trouble. The company I work for has a license for tritium, the license is basically a procedure for building our electron capture detect...

Re: How did you find our Fusor forum?

I found the site the same way as Ian, wasn't looking for anything about fusion or fusors.

Re: WA6-30N High Voltage Enable

Are you you enabling (shorting) the safety interlock before plugging in the AC power?

Section 3-1 in the manual shows the steps you need to follow.
Section 4-4 states that if the interlock is opened the output is cut off until the AC power is removed and turned on again.

Re: Usable X-ray Transformer?

Re: Usable X-ray Transformer?

The xrt is inside the part hanging off of the swivel arm.
Looks similar to the one I got. Should be large/old enough.

It came with turbo pump controller but the only number on the controller is MR0808Y029, which I can't find any info on. It didn't come with the Turbo pump so I'm not sure which brand of pump it's suppose to...

Re: Second Opinion on XRT

That is very large XRT, and can supply plenty of power. Maybe too much considering the price and if you don't plan on using it for more then a fusor. Finding older XRT applies more to dental XRT, since the newer ones tend to be smaller. A dentist was selling a XRT on craigslist as scrap metal, I wen...

Re: Capillary tubing & connectors for chromatography for D2?

It looks like a gas chromatography column, but not sure why it would be flattened.
