A uranium based getter bed for storage of upto 2 gm hydrogen has been fabricated and its qualitative performance with respect to adsorption and desorption of hydrogen has been studied. Several safety measures were incorporated in the design and operation of the storage bed based on potential hazards that can arise in handling hydrogen and uranium. The observed behavior of the bed can be used to obtain design and operating information for future experiments.
