Abstract

Operation of the time projection chamber of the ALEPH experiment at LEP requires a high-purity argon/methane gas mixture supplied to the detector under stable conditions to ensure minimum signal attenuation throughout the 43 m3 detector volume (max. 2.2 m drift length) and maintain near-constant electron drift velocity in the gas over extended periods of time. Design considerations for a gas system to fulfil these conditions are presented and details given of the construction, operational aspects and of the achieved performance.
