Description

A variety of machine protection absorbers are foreseen for the SPS and the LHC, to protect against failures during injection and extraction. The functional requirements for the different devices are presented, including expected operating conditions and anticipated performance limitations. General design constraints are briefly discussed, and some issues are outlined for possible future applications
