CAT Chat Minutes


Operations, Mark Beno

Beno announced that there had been only one significant problem this past week. There was a PSS problem at 19BM that tripped the Acis system. 19 BM was down for 207 minutes while it was corrected. The Percentage of Scheduled Beamtime was 95.52% and the Meantime Between Faults was 45.85 hours.

Beno also mentioned that CNM is going start work on a building that will house a microscope next week. A work schedule will be sent out because this project could cause some vibration problems. More information can be found in an e-mail sent out by John Quintana to resident users on Thursday, July 2nd.

Safety, Tom Barkalow

Barkalow said that the HSS reviewers will be back next week. They plan on leaving their preliminary report and sending their final report in about 5 weeks. From there Argonne will be asked to complete an action plan. Barkalow assured everyone that the APS should not be too affected as everything went smoothly.

Next Meeting: Monday, July 6, 2009
