Designs and operations of the gas system and pellet injection systems for JT-60 were described. A gas injection valve that is a key component of the gas injection system was developed using a multi layer piezoelectric element. The maximum flow rate of this system is 43.3 Pam3/s. The valve has mechanism for adjustment at atmospheric side meaning that a repair and an adjustment can be conducted without ventilation inside a vacuum vessel. Two systems of pellet injector; one is pneumatic drive and another is centrifugal one were developed. The pneumatic type attained a pellet velocity of 2.3 km/s, which was the world record at the time in 1988. On the other hand, the centrifugal one was developed in 1998. This injector can eject trains of up to 40 cubic (2.1 mm)3 pellets at frequencies of 1~10 Hz and speed of 0.1~1.0 km/s. A guide tube for a magnetic high field side top injection HFS(top)) was also developed in 1999. The pellet injection experiment with the HFS system started in 2000. In addition, another guide tube for HFS(mid) injection was newly developed and installed in March 2001.
