Estimating the Cost of Superconducting Magnets and the Refrigerators Needed to Keep Them Cold

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The cost of superconducting magnets and the refrigerators needed to keep them cold can be estimated if one knows the magnet stored energy and the amount of refrigeration needed. This report updates the cost data collected over 20 years ago by Strobridge and others. Early cost data has been inflated into 1991 dollars and data on newer superconducting magnets has been added to the old data. The cost of superconducting magnets has been correlated with stored energy and field-magnetic volume product. The cost of the helium refrigerator cold box and the compressors needed to keep the magnet cold can be ... continued below

Description

The cost of superconducting magnets and the refrigerators needed to keep them cold can be estimated if one knows the magnet stored energy and the amount of refrigeration needed. This report updates the cost data collected over 20 years ago by Strobridge and others. Early cost data has been inflated into 1991 dollars and data on newer superconducting magnets has been added to the old data. The cost of superconducting magnets has been correlated with stored energy and field-magnetic volume product. The cost of the helium refrigerator cold box and the compressors needed to keep the magnet cold can be correlated with the refrigeration generated at 4.5K. The annual cost of 4.5K refrigeration can be correlated with 4.5K refrigeration and electrical energy cost.
