Abstract

Pressure drops in supercritical helium flow have been measured by using the superconducting magnet SAFFO as an hydraulic test loop. The experimental data agree with Colebrook's equation, where roughness effect is taken into account. Quench currents have been measured by using supercritical and two phase helium flow at different mass flow rates. It has been found that the quench currents depend merely on the operating temperature in the high field region of the magnet.
