Cryogenic System:
The helium cryogenic system consists of two Mycom screw compressors (60 g/s) supporting a 600 Watt at 4.5 K cryogenic plant previously used for the Tevatron Collider Detector Facility (CDF).
Currently Supports:

  • Testing of superconducting transport solenoids (14) for the future Mu2e experiment at Muon Campus. The test stand in the CDF pit consists of a cryostat with two removable top heads where solenoids are mounted and then inserted into the cryostat.
