The C-alpha reaction is one of the most important reactions in astrophysics. At Kyushu University Tandem accelerator Laboratory (KUTL), a high detective efficiency measurement has been made by adopting inverse kinematics: 12C beam is injected on windowless 4He gas target. In this experiment, a powerful background reduction system is necessary. We describe the effectiveness of the background system consisting of recoil mass separator, a long time chopper, and new movable slits.
