Recent technological developments have allowed for the creation and maintenance of high energy ion beams. At FAIR in Germany, to create exotic nuclei, high intensity ion beams are set to collide with a rotating graphite target wheel. The wheel is driven by a motor, placed within a target station hosting beam diagnostic detectors and a collimator. The beam-material interactions generate 4 kW of thermal power in the wheel. To ensure normal operation of the motor and detectors in the target station, a cooling system is implemented. Finite element method thermal and flow calculations have been executed to determine the temperatures of the motor and detectors and to assess the efficiency of the cooling system. The cooled motor system is found to not exceed 50C and the cooling system is found to extract 47% of the deposited power.
