The Cooling System

  • Water Cooled
  • Partially common to SDD subsystems (heat exchanger, purifier, circulation pump, underpressured water tank)
  • Counter-flow on ladders in thin (40 μm) pipes
  • Endcaps cooled in series
  • Water supplied at 17°C – no heat transfer for the SDD and the TPC
    • Possibility to tune the water temperature
