Special vacuum pumps developed for fusion reactor

This company has been awarded a contract to develop special vacuum pumps for the ITER fusion reactor (photo) — a multinational project to further fusion power plants. In order to carry out the plasma reaction, it is necessary to evacuate the torus-shaped reactor chamber. This company is developing vacuum pumps that are designed from stainless steel and have an extremely high external leak-tightness.A new technology that has been used for the first time in vacuum pumps will also prevent the contamination of pumps gear lubrication with the fusion fuel and vice versa. — Pfeiffer Vacuum GmbH, Asslar, Germany
