Barber-Nichols Inc. (BNI) is pleased to be delivering four liquid argon pumps to CERN in support of ProtoDUNE, the prototype liquid argon detector that will inform the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) construction and operation. Despite being some of the most abundant particles in the universe, neutrinos are extremely difficult to observe and DUNE seeks to help us better understand the nature of matter and move us closer to realizing Einstein’s unified theory of matter and energy.

Barber-Nichols Inc. (BNI) is pleased to be delivering liquid nitrogen pumps for High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) power transmission cables. HTS cables can transmit more power than traditional cables eliminating the need for infrastructure upgrades as power demands increase. Additionally, HTS cables automatically contain faults, reduce right-of-way requirements, and electromagnetic field interference. More

Barber-Nichols Inc. (BNI) has been awarded a contract by Fermi National Laboratory to supply liquid argon pumps for use in the ProtoDUNE experimental program at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The hermetically sealed cryogenic pumps will be used to circulate liquid argon, the neutrino target medium, through ultra-clean detectors and provide long-term reliable operation for the duration of the experiment.
