Abstract

During gas panel fabrication, a small but significant number of gas inlet tubulations are broken from the panels during the normal processing procedures. Since most of the panel fabrication has been completed by the time the inlet tube is sealed to the panel, scrapping panels having broken tubes results in a considerable loss. A process that successfully reclaims panels having broken gas inlet tubulations is, therefore, highly desirable.
