The superconducting linac ALPI, injected either by a XTU tandem or by the superconducting RFQ of PIAVE, is composed by 3 cryostats of bulk Nb cavities (β=0.056) and 13 cryostats of Nb sputtered on Cu cavities (β=0.11 and β=0.13), for a total of 64 cavities and an equivalent voltage of 35MV. The linac is build up in two branches connected by an achromatic and isochronous U-bend. In January 2007 a stripping station equipped with carbon foils of different thickness was placed after 6 cryostats, before the U-bend, to test the feasibility of acceleration and transport of a charge enhanced beam. The study was performed with 4 different beams (Ca, Ar, Zr and Xe) and a complete data analysis has been carried out.
