Last Wednesday, 7th September, we had the pleasure to welcome Johan Bremer and Michel Chalifour from CERN at Demaco for a “Factory Acceptance Test” (FAT). Demaco designed and manufactured cryogenic infrastructure: four cryogenic valve boxes, each equipped for a specific task, and thirteen cryogenic transfer lines distributing liquid argon and liquid nitrogen between the cryogenic storage vessels, the valve boxes and the liquid argon cryostat. All of this will be used in the prototype of the Neutrino experiment at the CERN-site.
During the FAT the customer witnessed the verification, that the equipment was manufactured according to the design and specifications. The results of several tests were satisfactory and accepted by CERN. Demaco is very pleased with the confidence shown by a renowned organisation as CERN, to contribute to their process to execute pioneering experiments. We want to thank all employees from CERN and Demaco who were involved in this success. Upcoming weeks we will transport and install the equipment at the CERN-Meyrin experiment facility.
