Nuclear fusion is the process of combining nuclei to produce a new bigger atomic nucleus. When atomic nuclei combine they release a large amount of energy, giving hope for a new source of power in the future.
Nuclear fusion research, to a large extent, involved understanding the behavior of plasma.
One of the major challenges faced by scientists is the ability to sustain plasma by maintaining the right pressure. Hence the need for large-scale, effective vacuum systems that ensure ultra-high vacuum in the large reactor vessels/cryogenic system surrounding the superconducting magnetic field coils, and which can withstand very high temperatures, ionising radiation and high magnetic fields.
It will be evaluated in some of the major research facilities including ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). Equipped with a unique radiation resistant envelope around its rotor and electronics, the pump is also capable of providing an increased magnetic resistance. This, along with the flexibility of end-user serviceability, makes it ideal for nuclear research facilities.
