Description: One Energy Saver Dipole Beam Tube (No. MB 124211) was tested under static and pulsed pressure conditions. Under static pressure, permanent deformation started at about 125 psi and reached .006 inches across flats after 220 psi exposure. Final catastrophic collapse occurred at 325 psi. Pressure pulses of shape and duration approximating the single phase helium pressure during a full house quench had no effect on the tube (previously staticly pressurized to 220 psi) up to 285 psi and a slight yield effect at 305 psi. Repeated pulses at 305 psi appeared to cause little or no further yielding. When compared to static pressure effects the 305 psi pulse produced the same deflection as about 235 psi static pressure.
