Tracker GoalsMain issue is to be able to run cold as more radiation is accumulated. Due to uncontrolled humidity behavior, our present limit is around 0C. Need to achieve reliably nominal cooling performance (coolant at -20C) after LS1.Running cold implies improvements and consolidation on the following areas:Improve dryness of various cold volumes (sealing, flushing, instrumentation)Consolidation of the cooling plant system (including the brine circuit)Re-commissioning (Pixel, SS at lower temperatures)

Need to decidePreparing the new CO2 cooling plantSeptember 29 2011Tracker Silicon Strips2Tracker: key points for LS1Humidity seal most challenging:Detailed efficient planning needs to be developedWhenever possible, organize it in self-consistent parts, fully qualify them and move onNeed to coordinate efficiently with other activities from Tracker, HB and EB inside the solenoid.Cooling system consolidation (pending also the brine ultimate performance assessment)Ancillary system consolidation (thermal screen, heating foils, monitoring and instrumentation, dry-gas system, etc.)Re-commissioning activity to validate all the work done and establish new running condition for both Pixel and SS tracker.Installation of the new cooling plant

Add instrumentation as appropriate (FOS, sniffing line, other sensors)September 29 2011Tracker Silicon Strips7

Extra dry gas flowACImprove humidity just outside the tracker bulk-headAdding another sealing barrier is currently under discussion with TC. The idea is to seal in a more favorable place, isolating a smaller volume around the Tracker BH, avoiding air sipping through HE,EE from reaching the BH region.September 29 2011Tracker Silicon Strips8

This seems the best place to add a 2nd sealingTest the extended Baggy conceptSeptember 29 2011Tracker Silicon Strips9The concept relies on applying a
