In a Light Source, unused synchrotron radiation is being distributed along the walls of the chambers. Due to the small conductance of the chambers, vacuum pumping will be based on the distributed concept, and then non-evaporable getter (NEG) coating is extensively used. The vacuum chambers are made of copper alloys tube, and cooling circuits are welded to the chamber to remove the heat load from the radiation generated. Filler metal creates a brazed joint between the water-cooling pipe and the vacuum chamber body. The thermal conductivity of the fillers is less than the vacuum chamber body. On the other hand, the velocity of the water in the cooling pipe is a critical parameter in thermal calculations that must be taken into account. So, in this paper, we study and investigate the effects of the filler metal and the cooling water velocity on cooling the NEG-coated chambers.
