Tests of large magnet components (h ≤ 7.9 m, Φ ≤ 882 mm) at low temperature (in liquid helium or under vacuum, T ≥ 4.2 K).
Note that T = 4.2 K is the current temperature limit. Future tests performed in the framework of a LHC / CERN project (study of the Q4 quadripole) will require cooling down to T = 1.9 K.
The station is located under two cranes (m ≤ 10 t for the first one and m ≤ 50 t for the other one, hook height of h = 11 m).
