  • Patent number: 5171180
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an impregnated cathode wherein an impregnated pallet is fixedly fitted in a cathode cup. The method comprises the step of disposing electron emitting materials together with a porous pallet in the cathode cup and impregnating the electron emitting materials in the porous pallet to produce the impregnated pallet. The cathode cup is constituted by alloying an oxidative metal or alloy, such as silicon (Si), nickel (Ni) or chromium (Cr), which tends to react oxidatively with the electron emitting materials, in a high heat-resistant metal. In the impregnation process, a bonding of the impregnated pallet to the cathode cup can be achieved by an oxidation reaction between the electron emitting matetrials in the impregnated pallet and the oxidative material in the cathode cup, without any expensive brazing metals or alloys. As a result, it is possible to reduce the manufacturing cost and the total manufacturing processes.

  • Patent number: 5132081
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an impregnated cathode comprising the steps of forming a porous pallet having a plurality of pores by sintering metal powder at a high temperature in a reducing atmosphere and fitting the porous pallet tightly in a cathode ring made of a metal containing an oxidizable material such as silicon, nickel or chromium. In the porous pallet, an electron radiating material is impregnated which is able to react with the oxidizable material of the cathode ring, so that an fixing between the pallet and the cathode ring is achieved by the reaction between the electron radiating material and the oxidizable material. In accordance with the method, the thickness of the cathode body can be greatly reduced, thereby enabling the performance of the impregnated cathode to be improved. Also, the manufacturing process can be simplified, thereby improving the productivity.
