Abstract
SMALL COMMERCIAL CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS AND COMPRESSORS FOR CIRCULATING LIQUID OR SUPERCRITICAL HELIUM DO NOT EXIST. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM TO PRODUCE A CENTRIFUGAL PUMP CAPABLE OF PROVIDING RELIABLE, CONTINUOUSCIRCULATION OF HELIUM AT LIQUID HELIUM TEMPERATURES. THE PUMP DESIGN IS BASED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SUITABLE MOTOR/GAS BEARING DRIVE SYSTEM INCORPORATING A HIGH SPEED INDUCTION MOTOR AND AERODYNAMIC BEARINGS. THIS APPROACH REPRESENTS A SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT OVER PREVIOUS DESIGNS AND IS ULTIMATELY AIMED AT PRODUCTION OF COMMERCIAL UNITS.
