NEW CONCEPT FOR A COMPACT TAPE TRANSPORT SYSTEM.
This paper describes a new concept in tape transport systems for the collection and counting of radioactive samples from an on-line isotope separator. This new compact design was motivated by space limitations but important additional improvements over previous designs were made in cost, simplicity and vacuum quality. The system is based on a continuous loop of 6. 5 mm wide recording tape 116 m long with a conducting coating on one side for beam current monitoring. One small stepping motor is required for operation.
