Comparison of End Barrel Cooling Layouts - UCL HEP by yurtgc548


									     Comparison of Upgrade End Barrel Cooling Layouts

Layout using manifolds to reduce mass and arrange pipes into bunches
     Layout without manifolds with pipes evenly distributed in phi.

Pipes are paired up into small manifolds at the barrel end then the pipes from these
(exhaust) enter large (aluminium) manifolds on each layer, with pipes from these
bunched at 45degs. Version 1 charts show input capillaries also paired into small
manifolds with no further manifolds. Version 2 shows capillaries without manifolds.
ALL pipes take the most direct route out from each end-stave connector and all
manifolds are BEYOND the end-barrel region.
End-of-stave cooling connectors are the same for both options.

Layers 4 and 5 are combined as most of the manifold mass is enclosed within the
space between layer 4 and layer 5 rather than beyond layer 5 where the envelope
in R is very restricted.
No connectors at the outer radius ie in the cryostat area are included as their
location in Z is not known.

Not much difference between cooling with manifolds and cooling without
manifolds – if no-manifold pipes can take a direct route on the barrel end.

Advantages of layout without manifolds:
A more even distribution of mass in phi
Fewer connections/welds/bends
Easier installation – less danger of damage to other services
Easier removal in order to access end of stave region

Advantages of layout with manifolds:
Fewer (but larger) pipes at high R
Fewer connectors (but larger) at cryostat region
Uneven mass distribution over barrel end
More chance of stresses on pipes/connectors and probably on end of stave
More different components to manufacture

Can try other proposed schemes eg Geneva layout – but need dimensions
