Project HELCZA - test of the main component of PFW

11.01.2016

The employees of NUVIA a.s. successfully carried out a full power test of the main component of PFW.

On Thursday, 10th of December 2015, the employees of NUVIA a.s. successfully carried out a full power test of the main component of PFW (Primary First Wall) technology – the electron gun.

The PFW Technology of SUSEN Project, known as HELCZA, is a device for a cyclic testing of materials by a high heat flux. The high heat flux is simulated by emission of the collimated electron beam on the tested material surface with maximum accelerated voltage 55 kV and maximum usable electron beam power 800 kW. HELCZA device will be largely used to test panels of the primary first wall of thermonuclear reactor ITER and for the development of new components resistant to extreme thermal stress.
