  • Notas adicionales en la data
    The holder of the registration informs: "The possibility of a rupture in the quench tube, which may cause the helium gas to leak into the magnetic room or any other area near the quench tube. In rare cases, this helium gas may lead to a displacement of oxygen in the air causing danger by asphyxiation in people in the area. Other hazards, such as freezing, can be caused by the extremely low temperatures of helium gas. #### UPDATED ON 08/21/2017, the field action documentations submitted by the company are filed in the area. If necessary, the area can reassess the action at any time.
  • Causa
    Siemens has detected that in some cases siemens magnetom systems with superconducting magnets may have been installed by omitting essential safety requirements for the installation of the quench tube.
  • Acción
    The registration company advises users to wait for the quench tube check by the Siemens team. If, during the inspection, you detect any discrepancies with the requirements of Siemens, the user will be informed separately about the type of divergence together with a plan of how it will be corrected.
