The system is comprised of a stationary closed loop for liquid lithium flow between the lithium supply vessel, vacuum chamber, and the collector vessel. The flow is driven by argon gas pressure and by gravity and controlled by freeze valves. The system does not contain any moving mechanical parts contacting the flow.
