Accelerator update, Aug. 26, 2013

Linac and Booster
AD personnel operated the Linac and Booster accelerators, conducted machine studies and carried out maintenance and minor repairs.

Main Injector and NuMI
Work is progressing well on fixing the vacuum problems in the 307-309 sections of the Main Injector. Work on one of the sections is complete. The goal is to achieve a high vacuum of 10-8 torr. Personnel expect to send beam to the NuMI target hall this week.

Fixed-target area
Work on the Neutrino Muon Beamline, which delivers beam to the SeaQuest experiment, continues. New beam pipes have been installed along more than half the length of the beam enclosure.
