Presicion Gluing of the Boundary Shell Elements
Finally we had to develop our own glue to build a gas tight boundary for the
Green Revolution Energy Converter (GREC) Work Generating Volume (WGV). Each layer
boundary is built of machined parts called Shells. Shells on the warm and cold
conducting sides are in aluminium and are glued with our own heat conducting
glue. Shells on the neutral insulating sides (nil-sides) are glued with
silicon glue. We use the granite table so we are able to measure the hight of
the shell layer with heigh precision.
Bernard and Bernard are distributing the heat conducting glue evenly on the
conducting fin peripheral surfaces and putting the conducting shells in place
before application of soft silicone glue on the insulating nil-shells. With
all shell parts in place we use a granite stone with a precision press surface
to set the correct thickness of the full circle of the shell boundary.
