Abstract

The United States Superconducting Magnet System (U. S. SCMS) is part of the United States-Soviet Union cooperative agreement on magnetohydrodynamics information exchange. As part of the program, the Argonne National Laboratory Superconducting Magnet Group has designed, constructed, and tested a super-conducting dipole magnet and its supporting systems. The system consists of the superconducting magnet, a helium refrigerator/liquefier installation, a helium gas recovery system, and the control equipment necessary to operate the magnet and its associated cryogenic equipment.
