Interest in vacuum metallurgy has grown considerably in recent years. High vacuum techniques are of fundamental importance as research tools in defining the properties of pure metals, in the extraction and processing of reactive metals, and are becoming increasingly important in commercial metallurgical processes. Much of the work described in recent literature has centered on applications of vacuum to commercial annealing, degassing, distillation, and melting and casting processes.
