Description: At the present time, there are three electrostatically purified (separated) kaon beams in operation at the Brookhaven AGS. They are optimized for .8 GeV/c, 1.1 GeV/c and 6 GeV/c. A fourth beam has been designed for a maximum momentum of 2.0 GeV/c. It features two-stage purification and higher order optical corrections. Anticipated performance figures for the beam, which is capable of delivering more than 10/sup 6/ kaons per spill, are given, as well as measured performance figures for the existing beams. Possible purification schemes for momenta above 6 GeV/c are discussed. Performance data from neutral and unpurified beams are presented.
