Detection of Density Variations in Flowing Two-Phase Hydrogen
The sensor had to fit into spaces available in the reactor without excessive disturbance of flow patterns.
Frequency response of about 2000 cps was required to detect small droplets since a well-dispersed two-phase condition was anticipated.
Reactor design required the connection of the sensor to the associated electronics with from 8 to 10 ft of coaxial cable.
The system had to be capable of remote operation and provide a signal compatible with available recording facilities.
