The resonance frequency of the HL-LHC Double Quarter Wave (DQW) and Radio Frequency Dipole (RFD) crab cavities is set to the operating frequency of 400.79 MHz by deforming the cavities. For both types of cavities, the tuning principle foresees a symmetric mechanical deformation of parts of the cavities in vertical direction, with the tuner motor placed outside on top of the vacuum vessel. The tuner design was successfully tested on the DQW prototype cryomodule with two cavities in 2018 in the SPS at CERN. This paper describes the design of DQW and RFD crab tuners. The experience and results of assembly and cold testing is given together with some required improvements. Finally, the final series crab tuners preparation is reported.

  In the framework of HL-LHC, a new infrastructure was installed in 2018, to test SRF structures in the proton beams of the SPS. Scope of the test stand is to study the operational performance of crab cavities for HL-LHC – more generally, SRF cavities – through a wide range of proton beam parameters up to high energy and current, under safe conditions for equipment and personnel. The SPS beam instrumentation is used to monitor orbit centering, RF phase scans, bunch rotation. To minimize impact on beam time, infrastructure and services allow for full remote control. Critical aperture restrictions is overcome by placing the test structure and its ancillaries on a motorized table for lateral translation in- and out of beam. Two articulated Y-shaped vacuum chambers connect the test cryomodule on a beam by-pass. A new cryogenic refrigerator is installed in a split scheme, with an underground cold box fed from a surface compressor. The two Inductive Output Tubes (IOT) power amplifiers deliver up to 60 kW cw via coaxial transmission lines to the two cavities and charges and circulators, the latter installed on the translation table. Interlocks and safety equipment complete the test stand.
