  • Description

    One of the problems on which the Physics of High Pressures Institute of the Soviet Academy of Sciences is working is that of producing industrial diamonds by a new method. An entirely new pressure apparatus had to be devised for this purpose.

    This apparatus can exert a pressure of a hundred thousand atmospheres and plays the chief part in producing the diamonds. In spite of its power the device take up comparatively little space.

    The raw material is placed in a compartment in which the pressure is applied to it. The necessary pressure of a hundred thousand atmosphere and temperature of 2,000 degrees centigrade are regulated by special instruments.

    The diamonds produced in the institute can be used for working the very hardest materials. They are very widely used in the manufacturing industries.
