REPORT ON "O" RING TEST
Leakage and high temperature effects were observed on the "O" rings installed in a reactor prototype buffer seal. Using 48-181 compound Parker "O" rings, the lower end of the housing was held at 350 F for 168 hours; water pressure was maintained at 1800 psig using city drinking water; and the capsule housing was plugged at the orifice opening and lantern ring openings. No leakage was observed during periodic checking of the test. A diagram showing the arrangement of the test apparatus is provided.
