Subject: RGA pumping down 

1. Jordan reported that the newly installed Pirani gauge for P2 shows 850Torr while PTP2 show 680 Torr. Because of this, the vacuum interlock fails when we try to open V4.

2. Went to c1vac. Copied the interlock setting file interlock_conditions.yaml to interlock_conditions_220304.yaml
3. Deleted diffpressure line and pump_underspeed line for V4
4. Restarted the interlock service

controls@c1vac:/opt/target/python/interlocks$ sudo systemctl status interlock.service  
controls@c1vac:/opt/target/python/interlocks$ sudo systemctl restart interlock.service
controls@c1vac:/opt/target/python/interlocks$ sudo systemctl status interlock.service

5. The above 2~4 was unnecessary. Start over.


Let RP1/3 pump down TP1 section through the pump spool. Then let TP2 pump down TP1 and RGA.

1. Open V7. This made P2 a bit lower (P2 is alive) and P3.
2. Connected the main RP tube to the RP port.
2. Started RP1/3. PRP quickly reaches 0.4Torr.
3. Opened V6 this made P3 and O2 below 1Torr.
4. Close V6. Shutdown RP1/3. Disconnect the RP tube.
5. Turn on auxRP at the wall powe
6. Turn on TP2. Wait for the starting up.
7. Open V4. Once the pressure is below Pirani range, open VM3.
8. Keep it running over the weekend.

9. Once TP2 reached the nominal speed, the "StandBy" button was clicked to lower the rotation speed (for longer life of TP2)
