Abstract: The cleaning inefficiency of the LHC collimation system for the operational scenarios in 2010-12 has already been studied in detail at injection and top energy (450 GeV and 4 TeV respectively). In this paper, results are presented for the cleaning inefficiency at intermediate energies, simulated using the SixTrack code. The first comparisons with measured provoked losses are discussed. This study helps in benchmarking the energy dependence of the simulated inefficiency and is thus important for the extrapolation to future operation at higher energies.
