An end view of the magnet HQ114 shows the clearance between the 3Q120 and the cable tray support is less than 1-inch (pdf file) (10 April 2003).
A bill of materials of the Installation Drawing of the Carrier & Pretarget Tunnels is posted (Excel file) In order to print this document on an 8x11.5 paper, go to “Page Setup”, click on the “Page” tab, click on “Landscape”, then under “Scaling” click on “Adjust to 53%” (6 April 2004).
Four types of magnets will be place inside the Carrier and Pre-Target tunnels: quadrupoles (3Q120 and 3Q60), B2 dipoles, trim dipoles, and a 200 turn bump magnet. Information about these magnets can be found at the NuMI Magnet Home Page.

MD-ENG-017: NuMI Pre-Target Tunnel – Magnet Stands (16 Oct 2003, revised 20 July 2004)
Abstract/Summary: In the NuMI Carrier Tunnel and Pre-Target Tunnel, there are seven (7) 3Q120 magnets, two (2) 3Q60 magnets, four (4) B2 dipole magnets, and one (1) 200 turn bump magnet. The magnets rest on stand assemblies that are made up of three basic components: the cradle, the adjuster and the base. The cradle and adjuster designs are similar to the components used in the Main Injector magnet stands. The magnet stand drawings are listed in the bill of materials for the NuMI Pre-Target Tunnel Installation drawing (PPD/Mechanical Department 8875.119-ME-427811). This engineering note details the calculations of the allowable stresses and loads according to the AISC’s Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and expected deflections.
MD-ENG-028: NuMI Pre-Target Tunnel – Trim Dipole Magnet Stands (26 Mar 2004)
Abstract/Summary: In the NuMI Carrier Tunnel and Pre-Target Tunnel, there are nine (9) trim magnets (corrector magnets). The magnets rest on stand assemblies that are made up of two basic components: the adjuster and the base. The magnet stand drawings are listed in the bill of materials for the NuMI Pre-Target Tunnel Installation drawing (PPD/Mechanical Department 8875.119-ME-427811). This engineering note details the calculations of the allowable stresses and loads according to the AISC’s Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and expected deflections.
MD-ENG-029: NuMI Winch System for NuMI Pre-Target Tunnels (9 Apr 2003)
Abstract/Summary: The NuMI B2 magnet transport cart will be pulled up a 15% (8.5 degree) slope by a winch through the pre-target tunnel. The cart (including the spreader) weighs 3300 pounds. The B2 magnet weights 25,900 pounds. The force that the winch must pull is calculated. The winch and winch cable specifications are listed.
