Safety aspects of superconducting magnets for Super-FRS / , Hans Guenter (speaker)
The Super Fragment Separator (Super FRS) is a two-stage in flight separator to be built next to the site of GSI, Darmstadt, Germany as part of FAIR (Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research). Its purpose is to create and separate rare isotope beams and to enable the mass measurement also for very short lived nuclei. [...]

ISO and EIGA standards for cryogenic vessels and accessories / , Hervé (speaker) (AIR LIQUIDE)
The ISO/TC 220 « Cryogenic vessels » covers standardization in the field of insulated vessels (vacuum or non-vacuum) for the storage and the transport of refrigerated liquefied gases of class 2 of “Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Model regulations – of the United Nations”. In particular, it concerns the design of the vessels and their safety accessories, gas/materials compatibility, insulation performance, the operational requirements of the equipment and accessories. The European Industrial Gas Association, EIGA, is a safety and technically oriented organization representing a majority of European and a number of non-European companies producing and distributing industrial, medical and food gases. The EIGA/WG 6’s scope is cryogenic vessels and accessories, including their design, material compatibility, operational requirements and periodical inspection. [...]

Heat flux to the helium cryogenic system elements in the case of incidental vacuum vessel ventilation with atmospheric air / , Jaroslaw (speaker) (Wroclaw University of Technology)
The selection process for size in safety equipment for cold vessels or process pipes in cryogenic systems should take into consideration the incidental ventilation of the vacuum vessel with atmospheric air. In this case, a significant heat input toward the cold elements of the system can be expected. [...]

Approach to modeling of the fast energy discharge in cryogenic systems in the form of an electric arc / , Jaroslaw (speaker) (Wroclaw University of Technology)
Superconducting magnets are supplied with a few kA of electric current and can store a large amount of energy. Therefore, cryogenic systems which are comprised of such magnets are subject to the risk of fast energy discharge from the magnets themselves in the form of an electric arc. [...]

Cryogenic Hazard at ESS – strategy, safety studies and lessons learned / , Duy (speaker) (European Spallation Source)
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is building a linear accelerator (linac) aiming at delivering a 2 GeV proton beam on a tungsten target wheel at 5 MW nominal power. The entire accelerator will be housed in an underground tunnel and will be fully operational by 2023. The superconducting section of the linac is composed of 21 High Beta cryomodules, 9 Medium Beta cryomodules and 13 Spoke cryomodules, as well as a Cryogenic Distribution System (CDS) that will be provided with liquid helium.

Knowledge Transfer at CERN / , Zoe (speaker) (CERN)
The electric light bulb has been called the most important invention since man-made fire, and Oren Harari is famously quoted as saying that it “did not come about from continuous improvement of the candle”. The modern lightbulb is however the result of 140 years of innovative work and continuous improvements on Edison’s original device. [...]

Kryolize - KT Fund Project / , Andre (speaker) (CERN)
Safety standards and best practices do exist in the field of cryogenics but, as in most domains, they are generally inserted in a few ‘envelope’ cases commonly used in the industry, whereas applicability to the particularity of research facilities are not fully tailored to its needs. The main objective in these cases is to find a harmonised approach, based on lessons learnt and scientific knowledge. [...]

Software used to size the safety devices / , Jean-Marc (speaker) (CEA)
To avoid mistakes during the calculation, CEA/SBT has decided to write a software that take into account all the situations it is possible to encountered (subcritical state, supercritical state, …). The goal is to permit to the engineer in charge of a cryostat manufacturing to perform this calculation; he is the only person able to do the accidental analysis which is fundamental for the sizing of the safety device.
