Title: A High Precision Double Tubed Hydrostatic Leveling System for Accelerator Alignment Applications

Abstract

Since 1998 several hydrostatic leveling systems (HLS) have been installed in different locations at Fermilab. This work was in collaboration with Budker Institute and SLAC. All systems were either half-filled pipe (HF) or full-filled pipe (FF). Issues assembling HLS are covered in this article. An improved and cost-effective water system with temperature stabilized of water media is presented. This proposal is a double-tube full-filled DT-FF system. Examples of hardware configurations are included for systems located at Fermilab.

  • As a result of the calibration tests performed with the first prototype units using the new measurement principle, we believe that the described leveling method is stable and accurate to the micron level with a sufficiently large range for the expected elevation changes of the support girders used in the Advanced Photon Source (APS) storage ring. Although long-term studies with this system have not been conducted, we believe that after installation this system requires little or no servicing for long periods of time. The methods described in this paper cover only the elevation changes of individual vessels. However, changes inmore » the tilt of a girder must also be known. Therefore, a combination of tiltmeters in conjunction with this hydrostatic level system (HLS) would be most suitable for measuring the tilt and elevation changes of the APS girders.« less
  • The author discusses today`s satellite technology that has lead to the development of a system that will increase safety and production in surface mining. The Department of Defense is maintaining a satellite system made up of 24 NavStar satellites that allow the use of their frequencies to position equipment anywhere on Earth. The previous satellite system was called the Transit system or Sat-Nav. It consisted of low-orbit satellites (not many up there) that ground-based receivers needed three days of logged data to process sub-meter accuracy positions. With the NavStar network of satellites, centimeter accuracy can be achieved within just amore » few minutes. Changes to the way one used to survey in the mining industry are being replaced with the Global Positioning System. It has proven to be a system that is more accurate and after the typical learning curve that is required by any new system, will lead to higher productivity; hence, financial rewards are in the immediate future.« less
  • Lithium--aluminum/iron sulfide batteries are being developed at Argonne National Laboratory for use as energy storage devices on electric utilities and power sources for electric vehicles. These batteries are expected to come into commercial use around 1985 and to achieve rapid market penetration thereafter. By the end of the year 2000 as much as 3% (3 x 10/sup 8/ kW-hr) of the projected total U. S. energy consumption could be supplied by lithium--aluminum/iron sulfide off-peak energy storage batteries. At the same time 18 million electric vehicles or more may be powered by Li--Al/iron sulfide batteries. Projections are made of the quantitymore » of lithium required for lithium--aluminum/iron sulfide batteries produced during 1985--2000. The projected lithium requirement in the year 2000 represents a substantial fraction of the present estimate of world lithium resources, and is nearly equal to the estimated economically recoverable lithium resources in the U. S. In addition, the potential market for primary batteries using lithium will add to these requirements. Expansion of exploration for new sources and increases in production capacity will be needed to meet the projected lithium requirements for the introduction of these batteries in sufficient quantities to produce the desired impact upon petroleum conservation goals in the U. S. transportation sector and electrical power generation. 3 figures, 3 tables. (auth)« less
