Abstract

The MYRRHA project aims at building an Accelerator Driven System demonstrator, which consists of two injectors, a superconducting linac (SC) and a sub-critical nuclear reactor. The Medium Energy Beam Transport line (MEBT) brings the proton beam of the first injector, accelerated up to 17 MeV to the linac (600 MeV). In the meantime, the beam from the second injector is sent to a beam dump. In case of a failure of the first injector, the awaiting beam of the second injector is deviated to the linac. A switching magnet located at the junction of the two injection lines performs this beam switch in less thann 1.5 seconds. A magnetic design and a mechanical structure of this magnet proposed to the MYRRHA project are presented.
