  Superconductive insertion devices can reach, for the same gap and period length, higher fields with respect to permanent magnet insertion devices. One of the still open issues for the development of superconductive insertion devices, is the understanding of the heat intake from the electron beam. COLDDIAG, a cold vacuum chamber for diagnostics was designed and built specifically for this purpose. With the equipped instrumentation, which covers temperature sensors, pressure gauges, mass spectrometers as well as retarding field analyzers it is possible to measure the beam heat load, total pressure, gas content as well as the flux of particles hitting the chamber walls. Here we report about the preliminary measurements and results of COLDDIAG installed in the Diamond storage ring.
