Abstract

This paper presents the results of the design investigations and the manufacturing of cryosorption pumps for the Neutral Beam Test Facility �MANITU� at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) and the cryopump design analyses performed for the development of a test facility for the first ITER Neutral Beam Injector.
The two identical cryopumps for IPP are foreseen to pump a hydrogen-throughput of 3 Pa m{3}/s (H(2)) with a pumping speed of 350 m{3}/s per pump. The pressure conditions must be maintained over 4 h pumping without regeneration of the cryopanels. For the ITER Neutral Beam Test Facility, design calculations to assess heat loads and pumping parameters of the cryopumps will be briefly described.
