The Large Hadron Collider is designed to collide proton beams with unprece dented energy in order to extend the frontiers of the high-energy physics. The beam is not monochromatic and each particle deviates slightly from the nominal energy. These particles follow a different orbit around the ring and, in some cases, they can reach the aperture and may quench the superconducting magnets. Therefore, these particles must be safely removed from the machine before losses in cold sections occur. A

In this paper we present a new set of tools to simulate off-momentum cleaning in order to better understand the dynamics of such particles and to try to improve the off-momentum collimation cleaning efficiency.
