Title: Reverence electrode probe for use in aqueous environments of high temperature and high radiation

Abstract

This patent describes a reference electrode probe for use in monitoring electro-chemical potentials. It comprises a zirconia crucible having a closed end and an open end, the closed end containing metal/metal oxide powder and being retained therein by mineral insulating packing; a first annular metal sleeve formed of a metal exhibiting a coefficient of thermal expansion compatible with the zirconia crucible, and having a distal open end in sealing engagement with the zirconia crucible open end, and a proximal open end; an insulated first electrical conductor having a distal end in electrical connection with the metal/metal oxide powder and extending through the mineral insulation packing and into the first annular sleeve, and having a proximal end terminating near the proximal end of the first annular sleeve; and a signal transfer assembly sealingly associated with the proximal end of the first annular sleeve and through which is second electrical conductor passes to its electrical connection with the first electrical conductor.
