The design of the Model V transmission fluorimeter

Trace Elements Investigations 133
By: , and 



The transmission fluorimeter for the measurement of the fluorescence of uranium in fluoride melts is described. The instrument incorporates several improved features which have not been published previously. Unlike the earliest models, the design of the new fluorimeter, with its close machining of parts, reduces the possibility of light leakage and also increases considerably the ease with which the various components of the instrument may be assembled and adjusted. The Model V fluorimeter is a very rugged instrument with a compact arrangement of parts. It possess great flexibility so that various phototubes, measuring devices, light sources, and filter combinations may be used interchangeably.

Detailed shop drawings are given for the construction of the fluorimeter.
