APS-UES Meeting Minutes - 06/20/2016

Attendees: Clay White, Nena Moonier, Wendy VanWingeren, Dean Wyncott, and Patti Pedergnana

Nena Moonier

  • Today is Mechanical Monday; Patti will attend 431, Clay 433, and Dean 438.

Patti Pedergnana

  • 16-BM-D’s door is still not operating properly.  Scheck and/or MOM will have to come back for further repairs.

Dean Wyncott

  • Dean dealt with a Beryllium washer loss from a diamond anvil cell at 16-ID-D over the weekend.  The washer fell off the cell’s anvil within the framework of the cell.  It was fully intact, with no breakage of the material.
  • Dean is going to get a date for the mono beam HP type C survey of the mini-hutch at 1-BM.
  • 12-ID plans to take pink beam in the C and D stations in a couple of weeks.  Dean will get the routines and blue/pink sheets closed out during these surveys.
  • 3-ID had unistrut welded by Scheck.  The job was expensive and Dean questioned the charges with Julie Cross.  There are several Scheck jobs that have been expensive and beamline improvements are not being made because of the high Scheck estimates.

Clay White

  • FMS is working on the light bulb issue.  There are mechanics out on the floor replacing bulbs again.

Wendy VanWingeren

  • Wendy is working on 3-ID’s ongoing water overflow problem.  MOM-Water is going to bleed the beamlines water lines to remove any air from them.
  • Josh Wright asked if Sector 10 could get machine studies time to look at beam position monitors for 3-4 hours.  Wendy is going to submit a request for them for next week’s 48 studies period.
