Cryo Ops 2016 Workshop

This workshop is aimed at engineers who currently operate (or plan to operate) large cryogenic plants in the support to physics research or industrial applications. Due to conflicting schedules Cornell will not be able to host the workshop on cryogenic operations 2016. However, Fermilab has agreed to step-in and is currently planing to host the 7th International Cryogenics Operation Workshop on October 25 -27th, 2016.

As soon as their web-site is online we will provide a link.

Cryo Ops 2016 Mission Statement

The Workshop provides a periodic forum for research laboratories and industry to present and discuss current technological advancements, operability and maintenance experience of large cryogenic plants in the support to the physics research community or to industrial production.

The Workshop topics are intended to include the latest practical engineering, safety and operational management applications and techniques that have been found to enhance the operational costs, reliability and flexibility.

This includes topics such as the initial choice of the refrigeration cycle design; utility management; manpower scheduling; plant control philosophy and automation; short and long term maintenance scheduling; refrigerant loss detection and control; system contamination; component reliability; and equipment technical performance issues. Discussions of current technical problems and possible solutions are encouraged.

Please check back often for dates, times, etc., and contact Ralf Eichhorn for additional information.
