NIST – Deuterium Piping

Hyperion fabricated and installed 250-feet of warm deuterium gas piping and accompanying infrastructure to provide connection between an outdoor 16 m3 warm deuterium ballast tank and an existing section of warm gas piping inside the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). The deuterium piping was surrounded by a helium-filled jacket to prevent undetected air from entering the deuterium system and contain any adverse deuterium-oxygen events.
