Title: CALUTRON ASSEMBLING AND DISASSEMBLING APPARATUS

Abstract

The construction of a calutron tank is described, whcre the face plate of the tank carrying the ion separating mechanism may be inserted or withdrawn with a minimum of difficulty, even though the plate has considerable mass and the center of gravity of the plate assembly lies within the tank. In general, the plate is pivoted at its lower end by a specially designed hinge, whereby the weight of ths plate rests on the hinge when the plato is inserted in the tank opening. A pistoncylinder arrangement is mounted on the tank and attached at the top of the plate to produce sufficient force to pivot the plate out to a point where it withdraws by its own weight and to retard the natural tendency of the plate to close with heavy impact due to the unbalanced center of gravity of the plate assembly.
