Commonly, strong solenoids are used in circular accelerators to achieve longitudinal polarization. In practice, however, these solenoids cause a phase space coupling, which has to be compensated for by sophisticated decoupling schemes. We suggest to adiabatically ramp into an integer spin tune resonance, while preserving the degree of polarization. When appropriately adjusting the driving horizontal field contributions at the final energy, the resulting polarization is longitudinal at predefined positions in the accelerator. Here, depending on the energy spread, the degree of polarization is conserved for several seconds. The contribution shows the numerical analysis of this scenario being confirmed by first demonstration tests at the ELSA stretcher ring.
