Facilities

(01-03-2015) Pb-Li Forced Circulation Loop


In house developed forced Pb-Li circulation loop is a demonstration facility for fusion technology where the circulating liquid Pb-Li act as a coolant to draw energy from fusion reaction.




Technologies Developed

01-06-2017

Lead lithium eutectic is a proposed blanket and coolant material for fusion reactors. Typical preparation of the eutectic by arc melting is difficult due to the high density difference between the constituents (Lead and Lithium) and high melting point intermetallic formations. Material Group, BARC has developed a novel technique to prepare Pb-Li alloy for the first time in India. The technology has been tested for 20Kg/batch level for five times and ready to transfer so that it can be prepared in large quantity.
