TEMP ISSUE - NORTH RAL

TO ALL IN NORTH RAL:


The SCS Facilities & Safety team has been made aware it is rather chilly in north RAL.  After speaking with Steam Distribution, we were advised the radiation steam heat had to be turned off to repair a leak that has been detected on the 3rd floor.  They are working to repair it, however, there is no timeline on when the repair will be completed right now.  Until it is completely repaired, the radiator steam heat has to stay off.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you updated via email and the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices page:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.

NEW EMAIL ADDRESS FOR SAFETY EXAM REQUESTS

TO ALL IN SCS:

The SCS Facilities and Safety Team have decided to take a different route when it comes to requesting SCS Safety Exam enrollment through Compass.  Previously, you would email me directly to ask to be enrolled.   This process was not adequate because if I was out of the office, there wasn’t anyone else checking to see who needed to be enrolled. 

Moving forward, please use this email address when requesting SCS Safety Exam enrollment:  scs-safetyexam@mx.uillinois.edu

This will help streamline the requests and allow others on the SCS Facilities and Safety Team to access the email account to enroll you when I am unavailable.  This information will also be posted on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices Blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

CLSL-A Transformer : UPDATE INCLUDED


UPDATE FROM F & S:  

Switching is complete. We energized, de-energized, and then re-energized. This was needed in order to change rotation. The new transformer is now on. We will reach out in the near future to start the process of scheduling the final outage.




To All in CLSL-A:

This message was sent by F & S regarding the new transformer for CLSL-A:

The transformer has been replaced in CLSL“A” building basement electrical room. We would like to energize the transformer Tuesday morning 1/23/18. This is to energize the transformer only. We will not be connecting any load to it yet. This should not affect any electrical power in the building, however, to be safe and side on the extreme case you could experience a ~10V sag for a few seconds, perhaps twice, between 7:30A and 8:30A . This could cause a small brownout with this much of a sag in voltage if the extreme scenario was to occur. Some sensitive laser equipment may need to be shut down, in addition to the NMRs. After the transformer has been energized we can schedule a time to connect the loads and return the system back to normal. 

If you feel this may affect any equipment in your labs, we recommend you take the necessary precautions ahead of this event.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know ASAP.
