The eutectic composition Pb 15.8 Li is a serious candidate to be the working medium in the blanket of a thermonuclear reactor. Equipment for producing 75 kg of the alloy in one batch has been worked out at the Institute of Physics. The paper contains introduction to specific problems, which appeared at the process development, the description of the design, the description of operations during the run of the process and the chemical content fixation of the produced alloy. Figs 9, Refs 2.
