Under the fourth generation reactors and more particularly sodium ASTRID prototype, the CEA supports the development of an electromagnetic pump
high volume dedicated to secondary and qualification of this component.
The small pot size including the electromagnetic pump
provides plug-in, high performance capability at a fraction of the cost for a new soldering machine.
In the project ASTRID (Advanced Sodium Technological Reactor for Industrial Demonstration), CEA performs the loop PEMDYN is a test circuit to test and characterize an electromagnetic pump
(EMP) for the movement of sodium to large flow inside of the cooling circuits.
In the 1990s at the Ford Windsor Aluminum Plant, Windsor, Ontario, Canada, (now Nemak Canada, Windsor Aluminum Plant) clogging problems began to develop with the electromagnetic pump
used to deliver molten 319 aluminum to the mold in the Cosworth casting process the plant was utilizing.
Pneumatic pressure or an electromagnetic pump
takes the metal from 6 in.
Zircon sand molds with furan binder system are filled from the bottom of the mold using an electromagnetic pump
Because of this, a special electromagnetic pump
was designed to draw molten aluminum from the center of the holding furnace, where the cleanest metal is found.
Filling head and feeding pressure is provided by an electromagnetic pump
which is permanently submerged in the holding furnace.
The use of conventional electromagnetic pumps
requires a long line between the pump and the patient, which is unpractical and leads to variations in the flow rate and waste of costly medication.
for non-turbulent, fully automated.
discussed how the technology of electromagnetic pumps
has changed over the last 25 years and where it is heading.
GE Hitachi s project will consist of the development of high temperature insulation materials in addition to analysis tools to help design and make electromagnetic pumps
for liquid-metal-cooled nuclear reactors.
