Abstract

In this paper, general features and measured results of vacuum pressure on the vacuum system of 50 MeV proton KCCH-cyclotron which was installed in Korea Cancer Center Hospital are described. The vacuum system comprises five subgroups and the operating sequences are automatically controlled by EPROM-programmable controller. In normal operation, the obtained ultimate pressures of vacuum groups were $5{\times}10^{-6}mbar(I,\;II),\;2{\times}10^{-6}mbar(III),\;1.2{\times}10^{-5}mbar(IV),\;1.5{\times}10^{-6}mbar(V)$, respectively. It was confirmed that these pressures was enough to accelerate the 50 MeV-proton beam.
