We verify theoretically that the anomalous longitudinal temperature reduction of strongly electron cooled heavy ions in the ESR at very low density is explained by the fact that there is no intrabeam scattering and that the particles by their Coulomb repulsion cannot pass each other any more. At the achievable momentum spreads Coulomb order is reached at particle distances of the order of centimeters. It is also shown that under the given experimental conditions in the proton NAP-M experiment of 1980 intrabeam heating counteracts Coulomb order.
