Really cool: ITER's Cooling Water System in 3D

From 20-22 March 2012, more than 20 participants from the ITER Organization, the US Domestic Agency (US-DA), plus outside experts contributed to an in-depth review of the preliminary design of the ITER Tokamak Cooling Water System (see report in this issue). This short video provides an overview of a 3D model of the system's preliminary design, which was completed by the US-DA with oversight by the ITER Organization. In order to remove heat from the plasma as well as provide draining, drying and gas baking which support maintenance and reduce impurities in the vacuum vessel wall, the Tokamak Cooling Water System interfaces with the majority of ITER systems.

We'd like to thank Jan Berry and Lynne Degitz from the US ITER Project Office in Oak Ridge for taking the lead in producing this video.
