Framatome, Ultra Safe partner to manufacture TRISO and FCM fuel
Framatome and Ultra Safe Nuclear announced on January 26 that they intend to form a joint venture to manufacture commercial quantities of tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particles and Ultra Safe’s proprietary fully ceramic microencapsulated (FCM) fuel.
The companies have signed a nonbinding agreement to integrate their resources to bring commercially viable, fourth-generation nuclear fuel to market for Ultra Safe’s micro-modular reactor (MMR) and other advanced reactor designs.

Neutral beam injection (NBI) is one of the heating methods in tokamaks. In the process of injection, the neutral particles will not be absolutely absorbed by plasma. The unabsorbed neutral particles penetrate plasma and are shot at inner wall tiles. It will cause the temperature increases of armor tiles that are placed opposite the NBI injection windows. In order to ensure that the armor tiles work during a safe interval, the data acquisition and protection system of infrared thermometer has been developed. The system achieves the functions of isolated transmission, remote monitoring, and fast protection. The response time of data acquisition and protection system is less than 5 μ, and the transmission rate of the system is 5 kHz. The quick response and stability of the data acquisition and protection system have been confirmed in practice.
