The MultiWire Proportional Chambers (MWPCs) for the LHCb Muon Detector were subjected to an ageing test, performed in the high-radiation environment of the Calliope Gamma Facility of the ENEA-Casaccia Research Centre. The test showed that the MWPCs can safely operate for many years in a high intensity particle flux. An additional test, performed with the CERN Gamma Irradiation Facility (GIF), confirmed these conclusions. © 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
