Gettering in nuclear fuel elements

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4124659.

A method of manufacturing a nuclear reactor fuel element which contains a pre-activated non-evaporable getter material such that the getter material starts to sorb gases at a temperature lower than the temperature at which the fuel element walls start to sorb gas. The invention is further directed to a getter device which can be employed in a nuclear fuel element and the nuclear fuel element per se.
