Title: VAPOR VALVE

Abstract

Electromagnetically operated vapor valves are described for apparatus employed in the separation of isotopes or elements to control the flow of gaseous vapors between a vaporizing charge chamber and an ionizing chamber, The charge chamber and ionizing chamber are positioned in a magnetic field, and the flow of vapors through an orifice connecting the chambers is regulated by regulating the flow of current through a resilient metal strip rigidly mounted at one end and positioned in the magnetic field adjacent to the orifice.
