An introduction to… Jumper connections


At the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research GmbH, a new accelerator facility called FAIR will be built within next years.

This facility will comprise two main machines: the SIS100 synchrotron and Super-FRS fragment separator for rare isotope beams. There will be 57 superconducting magnets to be tested in the B180 test facility at CERN, before final installation in the Super-FRS.

Why is all of this significant? For this project there are fundamental cryogenic equipment needs to be met and, more specifically, three jumper connections are required to facilitate liquid flow throughout the system. So what are jumper connections?
