High Pressure Source/Cryostat Relief Solutions

Description: This report addresses solutions to the potential problem of cryostat over pressurization by the nominal 65 psi MWAP LAr source dewar. Uncontrolled (by reason of failure) filling of a 15 psi MW AP cryostat by the LAr fill line could cause over pressurization by overwhelming the provided cryostat relief system. Three levels of protection against over pressurization by the source dewar are mentioned in this report; the reduced (operational) relief pressure, the source pressure regulator, and the LAr dewar cooling loop. Only the first of these is recognized by the ASME code as sufficient protection, the others provide operational convenience and avoid the loss of detector fluid. Flow limiting device solutions are not considered because of the conflicting requirement to empty and fill the cryostats rapidly (within one eight hour shift), e.g. the movement of the cryostat from the assembly hall to the collision hall, or the inverse operation.

Pressure relief subsystem design description

Description: The primary function of the Pressure Relief Subsystem, a subsystem of the Vessel System, is to provide overpressure protection to the Vessel System. When the overpressure setpoint is reached, pressure is reduced by permitting the flow of primary coolant out of the Vessel System. This subsystem also provides the flow path by which purified helium is returned to the vessel system, either as circulating purge/flow from the Helium Purification Subsystem or make-up helium from the Helium Storage and Transfer Subsystem.
