CCR Receives Navy Contract to Develop Corrosion Mitigation Technology

The U.S. Navy awarded CCR a $1M contract to develop technology to reduce corrosion in RF sources and solenoids. This addresses issues caused by sub-standard coolant water on ships in the fleet. CCR will team with North Carolina State University to develop Atomic Layer Deposition processes and equipment to deposit a protective coating inside copper-based cooling circuits.  This equipment would be installed at OEMs manufacturing traveling wave tubes, klystrons, magnetrons, and associated equipment.  The goal is to triple the lifetime of these devices, which would result in significant cost savings for the Navy. It is anticipated this technology would be applicable to any water cooled device installed where high quality cooling water is not easily available,  including remote locations and developing countries.ALD Schematic
