  14. History of Graphite in the UK Nuclear Industry ... History of Graphite in the UK Nuclear Industry 1. Early History 2. Magnox Stations ... It retained the well tested carbon dioxide / graphite combination, but used enriched uranium oxide fuel clad in stainless steel to achieve the high gas temperatures, and hence the advanced steam conditions ...

  15. Magnox is a type of nuclear power/production reactor that was designed to run on natural uranium with graphite as the moderator and carbon dioxide gas as the heat exchange coolant. It belongs to the wider class of gas cooled reactors. The name comes from the magnesium-aluminium alloy used to clad the fuel rods inside the reactor.

  17. At the time of the Chernobyl disaster, the RBMK reactors had graphite 'followers' on the end of their control rods. The purpose of the graphite followers was to increase the 'worth' of the control rods. For a given movement of a control rod, a rod...

  18. TELEFUNKEN guitar picks are made from Graphite enriched Delrin. The addition of graphite to the Delrin produces a unique tone. It has a brighter pick attack then a typical Nylon or Delrin plectrum, leading to an extra clarity and bite.

  19. The light-water reactor (LWR) is a type of thermal-neutron reactor that uses normal water, as opposed to heavy water, as both its coolant and neutron moderator – furthermore a solid form of fissile elements is used as fuel. Thermal-neutron reactors are the most common type of nuclear reactor, and light-water reactors are the most common type of thermal-neutron reactor.

  20. The sample containing 13 C-enriched graphite was synthesized in an arc-discharge chamber. For the electrodes, the anode was a hollow graphite rod completely filled with a mixture of 13 C powder (largely amorphous) and graphite. The total 13 C content in the anode rod was targeted to be about 20%. The cathode was a solid graphite rod.
