In spring 1988, TEXTOR was operated with liner and limiters covered with a plasma deposited layer of boron carbide. The objective of these experiments was to reduce impurity release by chemical erosion and to achieve gettering of oxygen by boron. This paper reports on the flux of boron in the scrape-off layer shortly after boronisation and its scaling with main plasma parameters. The experimental procedure and use of the Stockholm-TEXTOR probe is described in some detail and its capacity is assessed.
