04/12/2018 Fridge Cooldown

The fridge was cool-down starting from room temperature on April 12. The steps that day can be summarized as:

The table's caption
Time Process Comment
10:30 am - 2 pm Cooling down the separator Both needle valves closed and Separator pump flow constant at ~ 5 slm
2 pm - 5 pm Nose cooldown to 1.2 K. The needle valves were opened (both). The roots were on When the temperature in the nose decrease bellow 4 K, the bypass valve was closed and the heat exchanger was opened slightly.
5 pm - 10 pm Thermal equilibrium conditions ~1.9 K. The bypass valve was closed and the heat exchanger was opened slightly. The roots were off and a secondary small roughing pump was pumping the cryostat space.
10 pm - 12 am System off. The needles valve were close and the separator pump was off.


Note: Due to connection problems the separator flow wasn't reading all the time. The separator was woking from 10:30 am to 10:30 pm, which means that any 0 reading in the separator flow during that time is a false reading.
