The purpose of the refractory metals electrodeposition pilot plant is to coat large caliber gun tube liners and metals having a higher erosion and corrosion resistance than chromium. It has the ability to electrodeposite metals such as tantalum, niobium, molybdenum and tungsten. All of these metals have very high melting points compared to chromium. The facility is composed of a vacuum chamber, two very large electric furnaces, gas handling equipment, salts purification equipment, rectifiers, and computer monitoring and control apparatus.
