Beam Shutters APS (IS9)

ADC delivers standard synchrotron beamshutters. These typically consist of stainless steel tubes incorporating water-cooled OFHC copper bars and pneumatic actuation.


ADC also delivers cooled and non-cooled photon shutters. These typically consist of a fixed tungsten block mounted in a stainless steel chamber, incorporating water-cooled OFHC copper attachments and pneumatic actuation. Each assembly is vacuum tested to better than 5 x 10-10 torr.


The beam shutter pictured above is a safety shutter built for APS.
