An unusually large request for Sr-90 was received by the Isotope Production Department, and the Unit Operations Section installation for Ba-140 was the most suitable facility immediately available for extraction and concentration of their source material. Only minor process changes were necessary for Sr production. The runs were made not only to assist the Production Department, but also to establish confidence in the versatility of the Dowex-50-Versene system for producing Ba, Sr, or other isotopes.
