Process and apparatus for producing elongate rods

Abstract

An elongated cylindrical body of uranium dioxide is made from short cylindrical elements of the material by stacking them end to end and moving the stack first through an induction coil fed with current of such frequency and intensity that the currents induced in the material cause the central part only of the stack to melt, and then through a cooling zone wherein the elements are bonded and the material densified.ALSO:An elongated cylindrical body of a material is made from short cylindrical elements of the material by stacking them end to end and moving the stack first through an induction coil fed with current of such frequency and intensity that the currents induced in the material cause the central part only of the stack to melt, and then through a cooling zone wherein the elements are bonded and the material densified.
