Abstract : The transfer of responsibility for gun propellant climatic storage and surveillance from MRL to WSRL required the design and construction of new climatic storage chambers. Various design options were considered; the most suitable used direct electric heating with comprehensive temperature monitoring and controlling circuitry and was constructed as a prototype. Experience gained in this exercise was used in the final design not installed and operating at WSRL.
