- The superconducting magnet system (SCMS) consisting of the superconducting magnet, magnet cryostat, a helium refrigerator/liquefier facility, a helium gas-handling system, apparatus for cryogenic transfer and storage, a magnet power supply, a integrated instrumentation and control system including a computer for magnet operation, data acquisition, system status and diagnosis, and magnet protection is described. The complete system will be tested at Argonne and installed at the Coal-Fired Flow Facility (CFFF) at the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) in 1981. The coil configuration is the US SCMS type circular saddle. The coil wil be assembled on the magnet tube with spiral banding. The bore tube will be about 6.3 cm thick (in the thickest section) and the banding will be strong enough for coil assembly but too weak to transmit the 30,180 kgf/cm maximum burst force to the bore tube. Fifteen ring girders will be used as the superstructure to contain the force. The decentering force of about 0.2177 x 10/sup 6/ kgf will be taken up by end flanges and bore tubes.
