Earlier today they were going through setup procedures like "CYCLING" and "CIRCULATE AND DUMP".

These QFTs are clearly a CIRCULATE AND DUMP scheme 😏

Found a better explanation:

"The extremely high destructive power of such a beam imposes an external dump [...].
Each beam dump absorber consists of a 7m long segmented carbon cylinder of 700mm diameter, contained in a steel cylinder, comprising the dump core. This is water cooled, and surrounded by about 750 tonnes of concrete and iron shielding. The dump is housed in a dedicated cavern at the end of the transfer tunnels."
