JAEA is in charge of procuring Center Solenoid (CS) conductor in ITER project. CS conductor is Cable-In-Conduit type, and conduit is also called jacket. The cross-sectional shape of CS jacket is circle-in-square type, whose outer dimension is 51.3 mm and inner diameter is 35.3 mm. The length of one CS jacket section is 7 m, and the necessary total length of CS conductor is about 43 km. CS coil is expected to suffer high electro-magnetic force, so JAEA developed JK2LB, which is modified stainless steel expected to better characteristics of fatigue and thermal contraction in 4 K than SUS316LN, in cooperate with Kobe Steel, Ltd. The remaining problem was to establish production process of jackets which satisfy dimensional and mechanical requirement in ITER consistently, and also, Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) by ITER-original criteria. To carry out the R&D for above, production of dummy CS jackets were executed and these jackets were fabricated successfully. The results are reported.
