Metal hydrides offer safe, compact and efficient ways to process tritium in areas including storage, pumping, compression, transportation and purification. Westinghouse at Savannah River Site in USA has developed and implemented metal hydride based technology for various tritium applications over the past 20 years. This paper presents our experience in designing different types of metal hydride vessels for tritium processing.
