Tritium self-sustain and circulation is the core problem to use fusion energy peacefully. As the core component of the breeder in-pile irradiation test, the irradiation tritium production device provides irradiation space for breeders' tritium production and release. We take the Li4SiO4 as the research object and design the structure of the irradiation device. We complete the physical parameters computation, the irradiation device safety analysis and the flow field analysis of the breeder refueling, realizing the adjusting of the breeder irradiation temperature and the tritium release temperature window and making the control of gas operational parameters come true. The data could provide reference for breeders’ in-pile irradiation research.
