FAQ: Complete fusor diagram

Post by Richard Hull » Tue Mar 02, 2004 3:37 pm

Attached is a diagram of the complete fusor hookup for a deuteron fusing fusor. Demo fusors can do away with the neutron counter and all deuterium gas handling sections.

The TV camera monitoring system is optional.

The wiring details are covered in the High voltage and power forum over numerous postings and FAQs there.

This image has been in the "newbie" section at the introduction portal, but few newbies have bothered to consult it and constantly demand this info. I have posted it in the High voltage and power fourm as well.

Unfortunately, that is not a question that one can answer in a few words. Look around on the forums a bit at old messages, and at some of the websites listed in the newbie section. The forums have a search function, which can be found at the top of this page.

Also, introduce yourself in the "Introduce Yourself" forum and tell us a bit about yourself and what you want to do. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

A picture is still worth a thousand words.

Most all fusioneers never use a "fore-line trap". It is part of any real professional system and is included as an "ideal" item to have in a vacuum system.
The trap is there to keep mechanical pump oil vapor out of the secondary pump. The secondary pump is either a diffusion pump or a turbo pump.

I am attaching a fusor vacuum system image of the type most often used today. Some people do not use a diffusion pump and replace it with a more modern turbo-pump. You must have one or the other in addition to the mechanical pump.
