    Abstract

    The general problem of the determination of the gaseous elements oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen in titanium is reviewed. Some of the relative advantages of different types of apparatus for these determinations are discussed. A simple, rugged vacuum fusion apparatus for oxygen and hydrogen is described with some detailed observations on the variations in technique required to handle different types of samples. Special iron crucibles for powdered samples are described and examples given of their use in the analysis of sponge titanium.
