  The SNS Linac has been in operation for 6 years, with its power being gradually increased. A major operation goal is the decrease of beam loss. It has been recently suggested that intra- H–beam stripping contributes significantly to beam losses in an H linac. This was tested experimentally at SNS by accelerating a proton beam. Experimental analysis results are in good agreement with the theoretical estimates. In this paper we present the operational status and experience at the SNS linac, with emphasis on understanding beam loss in terms of intra-H–beam stripping.
