A collimation system has been created for removing proton beam halo in the 8 GeV transfer line from the Fermilab Booster to Main Injector. A pair of 1.14 meter collimators with 5.08 cm rectangular apertures are installed in a 5 meter straight section. Horizontal and vertical motion systems allow them to be positioned such that halo can be scraped from four sides. An additional pair of collimators, placed one cell (90 degrees) downstream scrape halo which is of opposite phase. Each collimator pair can scrape about 600 Watts of beam power, limited by long term activation of materials outside of the beam line tunnel. Personnel exposure is reduced by surrounding the iron absorber with a layer of marble. Design features,radiation calculations and instrumentation considerations will be described.

  Results of modeling with the STRUCT and MARS15 codes of beam loss localization and related radiation effects are presented for the slipstacking injection to the Fermilab Main Injector. Simulations of proton beam loss are done using multi-turn tracking with realistic accelerator apertures, nonlinear fields in the accelerator magnets and time function of the RF manipulations to explain the results of beam loss measurements. The collimation system consists of one primary and four secondary collimators. It intercepts a beam power of 1.6 kW at a total scraping rate of 5%, with a beam loss rate in the ring outside the collimation region of 1 W/m or less. Based on thorough energy deposition and radiation modeling, a corresponding collimator design was developed that satisfies all the radiation and engineering constraints.
