The LBE (eutectic Pb-Bi) loop for LiSoR (Liquid metal Solid metal Reaction) experiment has been designed, fabricated and tested basing on the severe constraint to operate under irradiation conditions. An experience of calculation, design and fabrication of LBE loop for operating in an irradiation facility is accumulated. The results of the LiSoR irradiation experiments will be an important contribution to the selection of spallation target materials for accelerator-driven system applications.
