The International Thermonuclear Fusion Experimental Reactor, also known as the “Artificial Sun”. The reporter learned from the China Nuclear Group that the “Artificial Sun” nuclear safety components undertaken by China – the gas injection system composite pipeline – have been manufactured. The last batch of products were delivered in Huizhou, Guangdong Province today (10th) and will be shipped to France for commission. Use.
Gas injection system is one of the important systems of “man-made solar” fuel injection. It is mainly used to provide the gas needed for plasma operation, maintenance, control and treatment for artificial solar devices. It is vividly called the “aorta” for gas transmission.
Zhang Jintao, head of the “Artificial Sun” project of the Second and Third Construction Company of China Nuclear Group: Because there are no mature construction standards for fusion reactors at present, each of our manufacturing processes is to provide Chinese wisdom and solutions for formulating future construction standards for fusion reactors. After two years of intensive construction, we have successfully completed the delivery of a total of 73 products in five batches.
The composite pipeline of artificial solar gas injection system is not only the highest vacuum level, but also requires strict quality control as a nuclear safety component, and the technical requirements are far higher than the current domestic commercial nuclear power pipeline, which poses a huge challenge to design, production and manufacturing.
Zhang Jintao, head of the “Artificial Sun” project of the Second and Third Construction Company of China Nuclear Group: In order to ensure the installation progress of ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), abide by China’s international commitments, and improve product quality and efficiency, we have carried out a series of optimizations and improvements to the accuracy control and assembly logic of tires. The delivered products were accepted at one time in the ITER (International Thermonuclear Fusion Experimental Reactor) site, which was highly praised by the International Thermonuclear Fusion Experimental Reactor Organization.
The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor is currently one of the largest and most far-reaching international scientific research cooperation projects in the world. Because the huge energy generated by nuclear fusion is like the sun, it is vividly called the “artificial sun”, which is also considered the ideal energy source to solve the future energy dilemma of mankind.
