Subject: slow pumpdown at 12 hours 

We have reached 200 Torr at 12 hours of slow pumping speed. Kiwamu stopped the pumping for 11 hrs last night .and I restarted it this morning.

Now RV1 is fully open with butterfly valve in place  and the second roughing  pump RP3 was just turned on.


How to stop pumping:

1,  close RV1 manual valve with torque wheel

2, close V3

3, turn off roughing pumps RP1 & RP3

4, disconnect metal hose connection to butterfly valve
