Penetration tubes extending between inner and outer walls of a cryostat necessarily comprise thin walled structures to minimize thermal conduction. However, in cryostat structures in which the inner vessel is capable of undergoing the relative motion with respect to the outer vessel, particularly during transport and thermal contraction, a means of accommodating this motion must be found which does not impose significant stresses on the thin walled penetration tube. Accordingly, the present invention provides a bearing and bellows arrangement which accom...
A penetration assembly for a cryostat having an inner wall and an outer wall, said assembly comprising: a penetration tube affixed to said inner wall and extending through an aperture in said outer wall; an outer flange affixed to the exterior end of said penetration tube; an air tight bellows affixed to and extending from said outer flange toward said outer wall, said bellows also being affixed relative to said outer cryostat wall so as to surround said aperture; a washer-shaped bearing through which said penetration tube is disposed, said bearing being...
