High Pressure High Temperature Experimental Helium Cooling Loop for Fusion Reactor Component Testing
Experimental Helium Cooling Loop (EHCL) is a high-pressure high-temperature closed loophelium gas system used for cooling and evaluating the performance ofTest Blanket Module (TBM), fusion blanket first wall mock-ups, Pb-Lihelium heat exchangers, divertor mock-ups and various other fusion blanket components. Vertex also carried out the detailed thermo-hydraulic compressible flow steady state analyses of the entire loop, and determined the required equipment and piping characteristics, so as to ensure optimum performance of the system under various operating conditions. This work was given the “Platinum Pipe Award: Most Interesting Model” by Applied Flow Technology, Colorado, USA. Vertex is responsible for all activities of this project from basic engineering, detailed engineering, procurement, testing &commissioning of this facility.
Ultra-High Vacuum Generation & Working Fluid Charging System for Heat Pipes
Heat pipes are critical components used in satellites for cooling of electronic circuitry. Vertex is providing the comprehensive solution from design to commissioning by integrating Ultra-high Vacuum Generation Systems, Cryocoolers, Baking Chambers, Switchgear, Sophisticated & Sensitive Control Valves, Measuring Instruments, Data Acquisition & Control Systems.

Total Intra-Plant & Inter-Plant Piping Systems for Toyota Motor Corporation & Associated Industries
Vertex is a proud contractor of Toyota Motor Corporation servicing their immediate, critical & future needs related to plant piping & maintenance for over 18 years. Piping systems covering the entire spectrum of utility piping, process piping & refrigerant piping exceeding 300 km has been installed across the entire plant premises.
High Temperature Compressed Air Piping Intake System for Gas Turbine Combustion Chamber Testing
Design & Evaluation of Gas Turbine Combustion Chamber (for defence applications) requires test rigs which can supply very high temperature compressed air @ 600 degree celsius & 20 bar pressure. Due to very high temperature & large pipe size (24”), the integrity & performance of the piping & it’s components was a unique challenge in this project. Vertex was responsible from concept design to final commissioning of this system.
Exempt Low Activity Liquid Water(ELALW) Collection and Disposal System for Medical Use of FissionBased Mo99 Production Facility
Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) is a medical isotope used for medical diagnostic imaging in a non-invasive manner for early detection of Heart Conditions and Cancer. Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology(BRIT), Dept. of Atomic Energy,Govt. of India requires a system for collection and disposal of Exempt Low activity Liquid Water (ELALW) produced from the Mo99 fission-based production facility. Vertex carried out Design, Supply, Fabrication, Installation, Testing and Commissioning ofthis system consisting of 30 KL SS Storage Tanks, Submersible Pumps, Motorized Valves, SS Piping, Ultrasonic Level Sensors, Control Panels, etc. This project also involved installation of underground Stainless-Steel Pipe-in-Pipe systems to prevent leakage of Radioactive Waste Water during transportation.
2MW Industrial Back Pressure Steam Turbine Skid Integration & Utility Systems
Integration of Utility Piping, Electrical Systems & Instrumentation required for the skid package consisting of Steam Turbine – Reduction Gear Box – Pump was designed & fabricated by Vertex. This also involved vibration studies due to unbalanced excitation forces due to the rotating machinery. Seven such skids were fabricated & delivered. Lift weight of each was 15 Tons.
