We worked in the new Argon glove box in order to manage poisonous or dangerous materials but left some time to test old and new coils.
It was repeated the tests over a coil named “half-coil” using two impedance networks that recovered a lot of energy but less than expected. When dismounting we saw that some holes appeared in the external part but the internal part was really damaged and almost all of it simply disappeared because it was burned and or blown.
Also, we installed a new coil system by using shorter coils to reduce the overall size to fit in a truck. The new coil survived without damages but it collected 52% of the energy of the larger coils system
