I've got this magnetron here. Is the white ceramic part aluminum oxide or beryllium oxide?

I've tried google, but everything I find says beryllium, I have a hard time believing this though. Why would it be beryllium oxide when aluminum oxide would be cheaper?

Anyway, just looking for a second opinion.

If it is beryllium I suggest you not directly touch it. BeO is pretty toxic, although you shouldn't have any problems unless some material is scraped off and you inhale the dust.

It's quite toxic if you breath it in, don't shadier it. It's used because of its electrical and electro magnetic properties
>>
>>928062
Try spraying it with water.

>>928085
why, what would that do?

Is there anyway to tell the difference between BeO and AlO?

The pink ones are beryllium. Still, if you crush, cut, or break an of these, don't breath the dust just to be safe. If you need to break it up, do so while it is wet. Like under a stream of water or even under a wet towel. This will cut down on dust. Do this outside while wearing a respirator.

does that mean that grinded to powder and put together with explosive you got a dirty bomb for cheap?

I mean not radiactive but still youre fucked?

sure, if you can wait a decade for your enemy to get sick.

>Why would it be beryllium oxide when aluminum oxide would be cheaper?
Because it's much better material for that purpose. Also, the total cost of the feedthrough depends on many things, not just on raw material price.

>>928101
The same thing can be done with tons of other household materials. Remember asbestos? Wrecking the human body is pretty easy.

Back when we carried Mk 28 hydrogen bombs on B52 bombers regularly, once and awhile there would be a crash with the bombs loaded onboard.

They never detonated, although some had their high explosives explode. The cores of the hydrogen bombs contained a sphere of beryllium to reflect neutrons back into the fissile material.

When the bombs would have a partial detonation of the HE, the beryllium core would shatter. Beryllium dust would be spread across a large area downwind, which would sit for years as an environmental toxin. Lots of USAF and SAC personnel, and even civilians unfortunate enough to be downwind or come close to contaminated areas, contracted Berylliosis later in life.

Hi,

The ring is ceramic (ie AlO2, or something similar).
The berilium is inside. It looks like metal (it IS metal) it is neither white nor pink (but ceramic may be also pink), I have seen some at cern, used as beam pipe.
And yeah, it is fucking toxic if inhalated.

Very interesting to know, thanks anon.

this is a troll thread. thats not magnetron, its a old 80s style hard drive

pic related, THIS IS magnetron!

German wiki says pink is not beryllium but whatever I wouldn't play the beriliumlotery
