Title: CONTINUOUS PROCESS FOR THE CONVERSION OF UF$sub 6$ TO UF$sub 4$

Abstract

A method is presented for reducing UF/sub 6/ to UF/sub 6/ with hydrogen. A preheated mixture of UF/sub 6/ and fluorine is contacted with a stoichiometric excess of preheated hydrogen in a reaction chamber thereby producing UF/sub 6/. The UF/sub 6/ reacts quantitatively and the UF/sub 6/ produced is of high purity and high density.
