Abstract: The ICARUS T600 detector, the largest liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LAr-TPC) realized after many years of R&D activities, was installed and successfully operated for 3 years at the INFN Gran Sasso underground Laboratory. One of the most important issues was the need of an extremely low residual electronegative impurity content in the liquid Argon, in order to transport the free electrons created by ionizing particles with very small attenuation along the drift path. The solutions adopted for the Argon recirculation and purification systems have permitted to reach impressive results in terms of Argon purity and a free electron lifetime exceeding 15 ms, corresponding to about 20 parts per trillion of O 2 -equivalent contamination, a milestone for any future project involving LAr-TPCs and the development of higher detector mass scales.
