Abstract

The performance of any cryogenic storage and transfer system depends in no small measure on the vacuum-tightness of various joints. The workmanship which may be obtained in any assembly involving welding or soldering may well provide some uncertainty in the mind of the designer and can easily be responsible for poor performance of equipment. On the other hand, the assurance of high-quality workmanship may encourage the designer to try difficult assemblies both in the laboratory and on a larger scale.
