This paper presents a schematic design of Tritium Fuel Cycle for Muon-Catalyzed Intense Neutron Source (MC INS) capable of producing monochromatic 14 MeV neutrons. Based on the assumption that the fuel mixture should be used in a liquid phase the different approaches are proposed to incorporate a DT cell (synthesizer) into the MC INS facility The estimations of total tritium inventory in ihe MC INS facility are given. The calculations of the DT cell operation temperature regime using the code FLOW 3D are presented. It is shown the capability to remove the thermal energy released in the DT cell of the proposed design. The MC INS design is analyzed from the viewpoint of tritium safety requirements.
