Title: APPARATUS FOR TESTING ESPANSION OF MOVABLE MEMBERS

Abstract

A device is described for measuring the swelling of slug elements in the channels of a reactor. It consists of hydraulically operated pistons at the ends of the channel which move the row of slugs back and forth. The resistance to moving is indicated by the pressure required to move the slugs. As the slugs swell, the resistance increases and a higher pressure is read on the gage. (T.R.H.)
