  • Causa
    A site reported a magnet quenching with subsequent venting of the cryogen gas into the magnet room. cryogen gas that vents into the magnet room could cause critical deprivation of oxygen to users and patients. there have been no injuries reported as a result of this issue. at this site, a magnet heater probe connection became disconnected. this resulted in ice build-up within the magnet blocking the cryogen vent. since the vent was blocked by ice, the later magnet quench caused gas to be vented into the magnet room.
