A New Microbalance Technique for Kinetic Studies of Gas—Metal Reactions at High Temperatures
A microbalance can be used to measure reaction rates of resistance-heated specimens with reactive gases by weighing the accumulation of condensed reaction products on a collector surrounding the hot specimen. The method was used to measure the volatilization rate of tungsten in inert gas in the presence of small amounts of H2O and CO2.
