Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) at the Department of Nuclear Physics and Accelerator Applications (Australian National University) is based on a 14UD tandem accelerator. The 14UD has demonstrated exceptional accelerator performance over more than three decades of AMS, e.g. by running regularly above 14 MV. We present the actual performance for the whole range of measured radionuclides and the potential of this specialised high-energy AMS facility - demonstrating the continuing need for such a system. Focus here will be also on the unique setup comprising an Enge split-pole spectrograph used as a gas-filled magnet (GFM). The GFM has seen growing importance at ANU over the years as a means for providing an efficient reduction of isobaric background. We use the Enge now routinely for 10Be, 26Al, 32Si, 53Mn and 60Fe measurements.
