During the first six months of the project, the primary design of an electron-beam heater was developed, which included all the additional elements provided for by the project “Mašīnbūves Kompetences centra izveide”, ID Nr. 184.108.40.206/18/A/008, study Nr. 2.1 Introduction of technological research and development of an optimized cathode-ray heater for the production of high-purity materials. Scientists of PAIC LLC, improved the previously developed mathematical model of the product, taking into account the introduced blocks. This made it possible to make changes and complete the creation of the basic design of an electron-beam heater including beam cleaning units by magnetic separation and gas cut-off in a gas-dynamic window. Work has begun on linking the product to the installation chamber and preparing working design documentation.
