Plasma and fusion research

Plasma and fusion research depend on high magnetic fields which can only be provided with superconducting materials. The superconductors are typically cooled with helium.


The cooling of the superconducting magnets and the acceleration cavities is an important driving force for the production of cryogenic systems and distribution systems.

The cold fluid must be distributed efficiently throughout the experiment site so that cooling takes place where it is required. The fluid flows are controlled by means of control and check valves. In addition to the process parameters, there are often additional framework conditions, such as magnetic fields or neutron radiation, which must be taken into account when designing the valves.

WEKA has developed and manufactured valves and transfer line couplings for these harsh environmental conditions, which have proven in practice for years.
