The control of tritium in present and future fusion plants is important for the viability of fusion as a power source. This theoretical study simulates a generic cold trap model which describes the thermal and control principles governing the behaviour of general cold trap assemblies. The model can also be applied to gas separation or purification in chemical processing, archeometry sample processing and process industrial applications, typically in the range of 80-200 K. It applies to any trap configuration and is used to simulate the dynamic behaviour, the thermal and mass transfer processes and the control parameters in order to optimise performance.
