Abstract

The International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) is a D +-Li neutron source aimed at producing an intense high energy neutron flux (2 MW/m2) for testing candidate fusion reactor materials. Under Broader Approach activities, Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activities (EVEDA) of IFMIF started on July 2007. Regarding to the lithium (Li) target facility, design and construction of EVEDA Li Test Loop is a major activity and is in progress. This paper presents the current status of the design and construction of EVEDA Li Test Loop. The EVEDA Li Test Loop consists of a main loop system and a purification loop system. The detail design was started at the early 2009. Fabrication of the loop was started at middle of 2009, and completion is planned at the end of Feb. 2011. Currently, the system diagram of the EVEDA Li Test Loop is finished to be defined. The diagram and function of major components in the main loop system and the purification loop system are described in this paper.
