Chemical and electrochemical treatment of elliptical cavities (maximum cavity height: 1.8 m and maximum mass: 200 kg).
This station allows one to perform chemical or electrochemical polishing of the internal surface of niobium cavities.
Electropolishing cycles are automated.
The station is located in a Non-Explosive Atmosphere Area. Measures are taken to limit the various sources of risk:
Additional facilities: acid storage room, gas extractor-washer which ensures the ventilation of workstations, acid liquid waste collection and treatment system, pure and ultrapure water treatment plant (resistivity : 17.7-17.9 MΩ.cm).
