As part of the US-LHC Accelerator Project, Fermilab is producing fully cryostated assemblies that will be installed as the Q1, Q2 and Q3 optical elements for the LHC Inner Triplets. The main quadrupole magnets in the Q1 (LQXA) and Q3 (LQXC) assemblies are MQXA elements designed and fabricated by KEK and Toshiba, while those in the Q2 (LQXB) assemblies are MQXB quadrupoles designed and fabricated by Fermilab. The cryostat assemblies for all magnets are designed by Fermilab, and final assembly of the optical elements occurs at Fermilab. This paper describes the production test results for the second LQXB cryostat assembly.
