Fusion research facilities usually work with large vacuum volumes in the UHV or XHV range in the reactors used. The conditions in these reactors test the limits of what is technically feasible in order to generate the desired process conditions. This places special demands on the components used. High temperature resistance, a physically inert behavior as well as the exclusion of any emissions are some of the aspects. VAT sets the standard for the high-performance vacuum valves required for this...
The VAT vacuum valve portfolio for fusion research is always tailor-made for each fusion project. Based on individual VAT basic valve technologies, the required valve classes are designed according to the specific standards of the project.
Key features are all-metal designs for high radiation and temperature resistance as well as maximum freedom from contamination and physically inert behavior. A specially defined portfolio is already available for the ITER Project.
