Description: The structural design and operational aspects of the ISX-B differentially pumped bellows assembly are discussed. The ISX-B vacuum vessel consists of two monolithic halves which are rectangular in cross section and joined together by short bellows which provide electrical resistance around the vesel in the toroidal direction. The bellows are unable to withstand atmospheric pressure and must be mounted within an outer, thick-wall vessel with the space between bellows and wall being pumped down to a partial vacuum.
