The US is responsible for the R&D, design and fabrication of the vacuum auxiliary and roughing pumps systems. ITER has unique vacuum pumping requirements due to high throughput tritium operation. The ITER tokamak, cryostat, and auxiliary vacuum chambers must be evacuated prior to and during operations. The roughing pump system exhausts the torus, cryostat and neutral beam injector cryopumps, and service vacuum clients.
