JAERI has been developing an improved compact tritium gas enrichment/recycling system for efficient research and development work using tritium. A proton conductor has been investigated and a compact enrichment system was designed with a hydrogen pump employing a proton conductor. The pump can separate hydrogen directly from the helium gas carrier and minimize the size of the system. A prototype hydrogen pump was developed and its performance test was started.
