Quench experiments were performed in the CEA Saclay facility on the Seht superconducting magnet. The Seht facility is part of the Iseult R&D program. Seht is an 8-T coil wound in sixty double pancakes using NbTi conductor. The coil is cooled by steady state superfluid helium at 1.8 K and 1.2 bar. Instrumentation, inside the coil and in the helium bath, includes voltage taps, pressure and temperature sensors, as well as flow meters. The major issues in the Seht experiments will be addressed here: the normal zone propagation in the coil during quench and the pressure and temperature rise in the helium.
