Abstract Prior to Long Shutdown 1 (LS1) one of the LHC injection kickers (MKIs) occasionally exhibited high temperatures leading to significant turnaround times. After a successful impedance mitigation campaign during LS1, the MKI ferrite yokes have remained below their Curie point and have not limited LHC's availability. However, for HL-LHC operation the MKI yokes are expected to exceed their Curie temperatures after long physics runs. To ensure uninterrupted future HL-LHC operation, a modified beam screen design, relocating some of the heat load to more easily cooled parts, and a suitable cooling system are under development as the current baseline for the HL-LHC upgrade of the MKIs. An upgraded beam screen providing such relocation has been designed, simulated and compared to the existing model. To validate simulations, two longitudinal beam coupling impedance measurement techniques have been used and the results are compared to predictions. The modified beam screen was implemented in an upgraded MKI installed in the LHC during the Year End Technical Stop (YETS) 2017/18.
