CAT Chat Minutes


Operations, Mark Beno

Beno announced that there had been quite a few problems with RF 2 and RF 4 during the past week resulting in quite a few hours of down time. The Percentage of Scheduled Beamtime was 94.45% and the Meantime Between Faults was 32.27 hours - the worst it has been in 10 years.

Safety, Tom Barkalow

Barkalow mentioned that HSS had completed their review with no APS involvement as they looked at big, site wide programs. He also spoke about a series of environmental walkthroughs that are ongoing. Things such as chemical storage and waste are being checked. Sectors 431-436 have been checked. 438 will be inspected soon.

Barkalow also said that Lawrence Berkeley Lab had been put on a temporary chemical stand down. More information on that can be found in an e-mail sent to APS Resident Users by John Quintana on June 17th.

Next Meeting: Monday, June 22, 2009
