We present a scheme for translational temperature diagnostics of ions in a 22-pole ion trap using data for OH and D anions. This scheme is based on the strong dependence of the lifetime of the ions on temperature. While examining loss rates as a function of buffer gas temperature we have found a breakdown of thermalisation for trap temperatures lower than 25 K. We have investigated this feature in more detail and have found that it does not depend on either buffer gas or the trapping parameters. We have also investigated two regimes for ion losses, either over one of the two end cap electrodes (axial direction) or over the effective potential (radial direction). We have found that evaporation over the end caps may be suitable for translational thermometry.
