TRITIUM COMPATIBLE PNEUMATIC PELLET INJECTOR

Tritium pellet injector was made for studying and developing technology of tritium pellet formation and acceleration with the goal to use it in plasma fuelling system.

The main distinguishing feature of the injector is integrating advantages of both the extrusion and "in-situ" technologies of pellet formation and acceleration under the variable injection frequency.

Injector has an automatic control and video monitoring system.
