CAT Chat Minutes

May 21 , 2007

2007-3 Schedule, Mark Beno

Beno introduced the new schedule for the 2007-3 run cycle. It will begin on Tuesday, October 2, 2007 and end on Wednesday, December 19, 2007.

User Training, Bruce Glagola

Glagola informed the group that there have been several instances where user training has not been current. Two possible reasons for this are that the training expires while the user is here and that the ESAF had been approved earlier while the training was still current. From now on, seven days will be added to the start date of the experiment to check on the training status.

Safety, Edmund Chang

Chang reported on the following:

  • On June 11, EQO IH will be coming to the APS to survey the LOM Machine Shops for lead.
  • There will be no June CAT inspections.

Cylinder Storage, Kevin Beyer

Beyer asked that the gas cylinder storage areas be looked at before additional cylinders are ordered. Some areas have already reached capacity.


  • Hot water leak in LS-CAT. (Apparently, a similar leak in Sector 1 was taken care of very well.)
  • Building 435 Parking Lot. (The work has been scheduled and will be completed soon.)
  • Sign needed outside Building 436. (This will be addressed.)

Next Meeting:

The next CAT Chat meeting will be held on Monday, June 4, 2007, in Building 402, Room E1100/E1200.
