It seems you have the Oxford Model M-2 Cs137/Ba137 Isogenerator (cow). We
relaced ours with a similar but improved "Isotope Generator Cs137/Ba137m"
from AEA Technology. This is distributed by Spectrum Techniques in Oak Ridge
TN Web www.spectrumtechniques.com (865) 482 9937; email spectech@esper.com
The old Oxford cow had to be flushed and filled with distilled water for
storage when not in use. The AEA cow does not need special storage and has
lasted longer than previous Oxford cows. I talked with a representative from
Spectrum, Roger Stevens, at the Madison AAPT meeting.
Good Luck,
Brian

Anyone have contact info for Oxford to get a replacement radioactive
cow? The label on mine has deteriorated...all I can read is Ba-137 (I
dont know if this is the source or what it decays to) and serial number
31D23. Any help would be appreciated.

Tappers, you might try the Ranque-Hilsch explanation at
"http://www.exair.com/vortextube/vt_frmain.htm" it's as good as it get
without bogging down in technicalities. Zig

Hey Zig,

While you're at it, can you round up one of your acoustic refrigeration guys
to explain to us the Hilsch tube?

I've been to Zig's digs and I think the campus is beautiful, Zig's stuff is
great, the area teems with interesting things to see and do, in short a good
time will be had by all who attend.

Gordon, you can do all the genealogy online now. Fishing poles are a
good thing if you have trout stuff.
Jerry Z. reminds me we are the home of the infamous "Gawdawfull" a
breakfast whose history is colorful, and will sate the biggest
appetite, I 'll buy a round for the "Lecture Demo" workshop instructors
in 2005.

PS Aluminum singing rods are fantastic, too. Have you ever started a
rod singing and twirled it in your fingers back and forth? You can
hear the constructive/destructive interference beats. Also using a
Frequency generator & speaker you can determine it's frequency and
generate beats with near frequencies.
