Title: Experiences of the Long Term Stability at SLS

Abstract

The long term stability on the scale from days to a year, besides the short term stability, is one of key performance indicators of a light source. The Swiss Light Source (SLS) was installed and commissioned in 2000. It has successfully worked for more than 5 years without re-alignment of the machine. Hydrostatic Leveling System (HLS) and Horizontal Position System (HPS) have been added at supports of the storage ring (48 girders). They made evidence that the position of SLS Storage Ring (SR) is very stable on the time scale of a day, a week, a month and a year. The evidence for the long term stability is also provided by frequency of the RF cavity. The HLS is a powerful tool. The analysis of the HLS data shows that the vertical displacements, which are adjusted to correct average orbit deviations, of the SLS storage ring foundation and of the girder supports were in the range of 0.15 mm in 2003. The site, the building foundation, the mechanical supports and the temperature control are important pre-conditions to get the good long term stability. The experience gained with the long term stability at SLS is presented.

  • Multiple reuse of the municipal wastewaters of Lubbock, Tex., is described. Reuse of the city's wastewater for irrigation began in 1925. Quality of the wastewater is examined. No problems with this application of effluent have been encountered. Wastewater is also reused for recreation, power plant water supplies, industrial process water supplies, and water supplies for oil field pressuring. From these long-term experiences with wastewater reuse, it is apparent that reuse is an economically feasible alternative to other supplies of irrigation and industrial water.

  • A series of 161 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, (C.L.L.), 30 (18.6 per cent) of whom have survived from 10 to 31 years after onset, is presented. Twenty of these long-survival group patients are still living. Survival times were calculated from onset of symptomatology or diagnosis in asymptomatic cases; diagnosis; and first visit to Donner Laboratory. Analysis of symptomatology, physical findings, and laboratory data at the time of diagnosis for the 2 groups indicates that there is no absolute measure for prognosis. The important conclusion from this study re-emphasizes the fact that the diagnosis of C.L.L. can be compatible withmore » many years of useful life and should bring reassurance to both doctor and patient that the disease follows a relatively benign course in an appreciable number of cases. Therapy was primarily with P/ sup 32/. No cases of acute leukemia were observed nor was the incidence of malignancies increased as a result of treatment. No other sequelae were encountered that would contraindicate the use of radiation. Pneumonia as a cause of death was significantly higher for the group dying before 1948, while for the same interval coronary disease or its sequelae was responsible for death in a percentage less than half that of the later period. While hemolytic complications may develop at any stage of C.L.L., they tended to occur more frequently in those patients in whom the course had been long and slowly progressive. Subjective and objective improvement occurred in those patients treated with oral androgens. Further work is indicated to associate a direct leukemic suppressive effect. Comparison of future studies would be facilitated if survival statistics are determined by some method similar to that used in this series. (auth)« less
  • Purpose: Vena cava filter (VCF) application is the method of choice to prevent recurrent pulmonary embolism in patients with deep venous thrombosis. Because of the reported complications after VCF placement we summarize our long-term follow-up results with the LGM and Titanium Greenfield (TG) devices. Methods: Eighty-seven LGM VCF and 17 TG VCF were placed in 104 patients (average age 64 years). The follow-up examinations were performed by color-coded duplex sonography, plain radiographs, cavography, and computed tomo-graphy (CT). The maximum observation time was 81 months. Results: Filter migration occurred in 11% (8/76) of the LGM VCF and 15% (2/13) of themore » TG VCF. Vena cava thrombosis was seen in 17% (13/76) of the patients with an LGM VCF and in 31% (4/13) of those with a TG VCF. The patency rate was 95% (72/76) for the LGM VCF and 92% (12/13) for the TG VCF. Pulmonary embolism was noted in 3 patients after LGM VCF insertion and in no patient after TG VCF insertion. Conclusion: A VCF should only be inserted in a patient after pulmonary embolism and when there is strict proof of the indication.« less
  • Six mercury continuous emission monitoring (CEM) systems provided by two leading mercury (Hg) CEM system manufacturers were tested at five coal combustion utilities. The linearity, response time, day-to-day stability, efficiency of the Hg speciation modules, and ease of use were evaluated by following procedures specified in the Code of Federal Regulation Title 40 Part 75 (40 CFR Part 75). Mercury monitoring results from Hg CEM systems were compared to an EPA-recognized reference method. A sorbent trap sampling system was also evaluated in this study to compare the relative accuracy to the reference method as well as to Hg CEM systems.more » A conceptual protocol proposed by U.S. EPA (Method 30A) for using an Hg CEM system as the reference method for the Hg relative accuracy (RA) test was also followed to evaluate the workability of the protocol. This paper discusses the operational experience obtained from these field studies and the remaining challenges to overcome while using Hg CEM systems and the sorbent trap method for continuous Hg emission monitoring. 3 refs., 5 figs., 11 tabs.« less
