A bunched beam with specific structure is crucial to attaining the experimental sensitivity desired by the Mu2e collaboration. The final goal is a ratio of in-time to out-of-time beam, known as beam extinction, of 10-10. An AC dipole system is in development to attain the final goal by sweeping out-of-time beam onto a collimation system, but it is still necessary to achieve something on the order of 10-5 when beam is extracted from the Fermilab Debuncher ring to the experiment hall. Several sources of out-of-time beam in the Debuncher ring are analyzed, including: intrabeam scattering, RF noise, beam-gas interaction and scattering off of the extraction septum. Estimates are given for each source as well as a final estimate of total out-of-time beam expected upon extraction.
