The Mirror Advanced Reactor Study (Mars) considers two blanket designs: A high temperature helium (1000°C) and lead lithium cooled blanket for synthetic fuels production as well as a simplier lead lithium cooled blanket for electrical power production. These blankets employ fundamentally different maintenance concepts for yearly replacement. A method for replacing this synfuel blanket has been developed and time of removal estimated, Methods for blanket disassembly and preparation for off-site shipment have also been developed and are presented.
