Abstract

Beginning in March 1963, the Dow Chemical Company started manufacturing its entire production of the organic chemical, ethyl bromide, by a process in which the addition of hydrogen bromide to ethylene is induced by a source of gamma radiation. This process constitutes a competitive, commercial use of 1800 curies of cobalt-60 as the reaction initiator. Drawings and photographs of this production plant are presented, and radiation yields are given. Experiences gained during the actual start-up of this process unit are discussed.

Este proceso constituye una aplicacion comercial rentable del cobalto-60 (1800 c), como iniciador del proceso. Se presentan planos y fotografias de la planta y se examinan los rendimientos radiatorios. Se tratan asimismo los aspectos relativos a la experiencia adquirida durante la puesta en servicio de la planta. (author) [Russian] V marte 1963 goda firma ''Dau kemikl kompani'' tselikom pereshla na proizvodstvo ehtilbromida: teper' prisoedinenie bromistogo vodoroda k ehtilenu proiskhodit pod dejstviem gamma-oblucheniya. Ehtot protsess predstavlyaet soboj primer promyshlenno vygodnogo, rentabel'nogo primeneniya Co{sup 60} s aktivnost'yu 800 kyuri - vozbuditelya reaktsii.
