Tube Reducing Company
Tube Reducing is an AWE site for 1952, 1955, and 1957 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.
Tube Reducing Co. conducted tests for National Lead of Ohio (Fernald) on shaping and sizing uranium rods. In January 1952, two uranium rods were processed. More tubes were extruded in a reduction experiment in January 1955. Another test was conducted in 1957.
The firm is also mentioned in World War II-era reports as a possible location for uranium machining, but there are no indications that any such work was done at the facility during that time period.

NIOSH also provided dose reconstruction statistics for Tube Reducing.
