Title: CALUTRON ASSEMBLING AND DISASSEMBLING APPARATUS

Abstract

A closure plate assembly is presented for a calutron tank. Due to the size and weight of the calutron tank a special face plate, hinges and latch construction are required. The salient feature of the invention is the provision of a face plate carrying the ion separating niechanism and adapted to close an open side of a calutron tank. A spring-type hinge secured to the face plate at one end prevents injury to the sealing gasket as the face plate is inserted and withdrawn. In additions a hinged support for the face plate comprises readily separable hinge elements, so that the face plate may first be swung outwardly from its operative position far enough to clear the ion separating meehanism carried thereby, and may thereafter be elevated and transported by a convcntional overhead crane.
