Title: CALUTRONS

Abstract

A vacuum tank is described for a calutron and the mounting means for the tank whereby the tank mav be convenlently positioned in the proper place between the poles of the magnet and there readily adjuated in height. A plurality of grooved guide wheels are mounted on adjustable levers attached to one side of the tank, along with a plurality of plain rollers mounted on adjuatable levers attached to the same side of the tank on the opposite edge. The grooved guide wheels and rollers cooperate with a guide track and runway, respectively, fer movement of the tank into and out of the magant gap, while the adjustable levers permit the accurate positioning of the tank between the magnet pole pieces.
