   * Make sure that the pressure-relief valve and the manual vent valve (see above) are closed.   * Make sure that the pressure-relief valve and the manual vent valve (see above) are closed.
   * Make sure that manual valve of the mechanical pump is opened (the valve **I260RV** will be automatically opened in the next step) {{:​wiki:​ManualValve-fp.jpg?​350|Manual valve pump}}   * Make sure that manual valve of the mechanical pump is opened (the valve **I260RV** will be automatically opened in the next step) {{:​wiki:​ManualValve-fp.jpg?​350|Manual valve pump}}
 +  * Open the gas-handling-system LabView control and make sure that the only open detector valves are **4** (IC supply), **5** (IC bypass), **6** (IC focal-plane bypass), **7** (Ion Chamber vent), **20** (CRDC supply), **21** (CRDC bypass), and **22** (CRDC focal-plane bypass) and **23** (CRDC vent). The rest of the valves should be closed. The pressure inside the detectors should be ~760 Torr.
   * Open PanelMate **S800vac** and go to page 07. Make sure that the venting valve **I260VV** is closed (see last step of the [[#Vent focal-plane chamber|venting process]] described above)   * Open PanelMate **S800vac** and go to page 07. Make sure that the venting valve **I260VV** is closed (see last step of the [[#Vent focal-plane chamber|venting process]] described above)
 +  * Make sure that the turbo pump is off (as seen in PanelMate **s800vac**,​ page 07, box **Turbo pump focal plane detector I260TP**)
   * Select window **PUMPDOWN STATUS** and click on button **START PUMPDOWN**. The **PUMPDOWN STATUS** and **VENT STATUS** windows should display "​PUMPDOWN IN PROGRESS"​   * Select window **PUMPDOWN STATUS** and click on button **START PUMPDOWN**.

-       * After the rough valve **I260RV** is automatically open, the mechanical pump will start pumping.+       * After the rough valve **I260RV** is automatically open, the mechanical pump will start pumping. ​
        * The pressures in the mechanical pump (from **I259PG**) and beam chamber (from **I261PG**) will jump momentarily to very high values. They should go down slowly after few seconds (otherwise, the chamber is not properly closed).        * The pressures in the mechanical pump (from **I259PG**) and beam chamber (from **I261PG**) will jump momentarily to very high values. They should go down slowly after few seconds (otherwise, the chamber is not properly closed).
-       * When pressure in the chamber (from **I261PG**) gets below 100 mTorr (at least 30 min), **I260RV** will close. ​Foreline ​valve **I260FV** will open followed ​by the turbo gate valve **I260GV**.+       * Make sure that pressure inside the CRDCs and IC (LabView) decrease at the same rate as the chamber. Otherwise, stop the pump-down sequence immediately. 
 +       * Note that during the rough pump-down sequence, pressure in the foreline I260PG will increase to few torr due to the purge line connected to the turbo pump. This is ok, as long as the turbo pump is OFF 
 +       * When pressure in **I261PG** is ~95 mTorr, turn on the chiller providing cooling water to the turbo pump.  
 +       * When pressure in the chamber (from **I261PG**) gets below 90 mTorr (at least 45 min), **I260RV** will close. 
 +       * Open the foreline ​valve **I260FV** ​using PanelMate box **Foreline vlve I260FV ** and clicking "​Open"​ 
 +       * When pressure in the foreline (**I260PG**) is below 200 mTorr, turn on the turbo pump. You will see the speed increasing in the PanelMate box "​I260TP speed"​ 
 +       * It takes about 8 min to get the turbo pump "At Speed" (as read in box **Turbo pump focal plane detector I260TP**). During that time, the pressure in the focal-plane chamber will slowly increase (it is not being pump down) by few mTorr 
 +       * When the turbo pump is "At Speed" and pressure in the chamber (as read in **I261PG**) is below 175 mTorr, ​the turbo-pump gate valve **I260GV** ​will open 
 +       * After **I260GV** gets opened, you will see a pressure spike in the foreline **I260PG** up to ~1 Torr. This is normal behavior. This pressure will slowly decrease below 200 mTorr in about 2 minutes. It will take at least 30 min to reach the nominal value (~60 mTorr)
   * Wait for few hours until vacuum is good. You can then turn on the ion gauge **I264IG**   * Wait for few hours until vacuum is good. You can then turn on the ion gauge **I264IG**
