Abstract

Developmental or “model” SSC quadrupole cold masses and collared coils are successfully being tested at the Vertical Test Facility (VTF) in Lynchburg, Virginia. Within this facility, a vertical dewar maintains a pool boiling liquid helium environment of 3.85 K to 4.5 K in order to observe the quenching and magnetic field characteristics of these coils. A description of the facility performance an its contents, including the dewar and ancillary equipment, is described hereafter.
