Fusione, Tecnologie e Presidio Nucleare Sezione Ingegneria Sperimentale IEA Workshop on PbLi-T Idaho Falls, 11-12/06/2007 Absorbed hydrogen weight (sample weight = 172 mg) as a function of time of absorption (in min.) is shown at various hydrogen pressures: 1. PH2=20.87 kPa. 2. PH2=30.80 kPa. 3. PH2=47.01 kPa. 4. PH2=53.30 kPa. 5. PH2=77.41 kPa. 6. PH2=86.63 kPa. 7. PH2=100.11 kPa. One can see that the 5 fold increase in pressure (from plot 1 to 7) gives rise to about 7 fold increase of solubility (reviewed by A. Pisarev).

Fusione, Tecnologie e Presidio Nucleare Sezione Ingegneria Sperimentale IEA Workshop on PbLi-T Idaho Falls, 11-12/06/2007 Possible developments Uncertainty remains about the range of validity of the Sieverts law. On the other hand, there isnt consensus on the Sieverts constant values. Taking into account the big impact of such issues on the LLE based blanket, there is the urgent need to find reliable and agreed data. A new task is presently open in EU for a further experimental activity. Anyway, an international collaborations should be of outstanding importance in this field. Reference Tritium diffusivity values in bulk LLE (Terai and Reiter) are spread in less than one order of magnitude. A sensitivity analysis should be done in order to evaluate the impact of the different diffusivity values on the tritium permeation rate into HCS: need of modelling implementation. Only few data on T/LLE-gas mass transfer coefficients are available. A new set of data should be extracted from TRIEX experimental campaigns, planned in the next two years. To do it, the implementation and validation of mathematical models in this ambit appears as a priority.
