The first of four dispersion suppressor collimators arrived at CERN

Monday, 4 March, 2019

The first TCLD collimator produced in industry arrived at CERN on January 30th. This is the first of four dispersion suppressor collimators that will be installed around IP2 and IP7 to improve the collimation performance. This is one of the first HL-LHC devices to see the LHC beams: installed in LS2, the TCLD will already be operational for the Run III from 2021. Around IR7, two TCLD will be installed together with the 11 T dipoles that will replace one LHC dipole per side.
